GOALS FOR THE SCHLAGE LOCK SITE
The goals for the Schlage Lock site lead toward the kind of growth
that will increase the overall quality of the community and
the region – economic
revitalization, transit-oriented growth, and improvements in
quality of life. The community has articulated goals to create
a livable, mixed-use urban community; a site design that encourages
walking, biking, and the use of mass transit; and a network
of well designed open spaces, public resources and amenities.
UPC has articulated these fundamental
goals in the proposed development of our property in Visitacion
