Site for Santa Cruz Nissan Approved!
On October 22, 2019, the County Board of Supervisors approved the application by Santa Cruz Nissan to develop a 23,000 SF. This dealership (including repair areas) will be located on the acreage across from Best Buy on 41st Avenue and Soquel Drive. The Vote was 3-1 with Supervisor Zack Friend voting no.
The supervisors cited the minimal traffic generation from such a large use of the site, and perhaps glossed over the high tax revenue generated from the dealership.
In terms of Santa Cruz County Commercial Real Estate, the redevelopment of this site is a welcomed move, with the area being a long time blight, the site of homeless occupation and vandalism.
