At their meeting on July 10, 2018, the Carlsbad City Council voted to approve a new plan for the Village and Barrio, two of Carlsbad’s oldest neighborhoods. Here’s what is different about the new plan and what the community can expect, now that the plan has been approved.
At a Glance
The city has been working with the community on an updated master plan for the historic Village and Barrio areas since 2013.
The plan establishes a vision for future development and land uses in these two neighborhoods over the next 20 years.
This is the first master plan that includes both the Village and Barrio neighborhoods. The city wanted to include both to enhance connectivity between the two neighborhoods.
The latest draft was released for review and comment in January 2018.
The new rules take effect on Aug. 24, 2018, except for parts of the Village that are in the coastal zone. Those will require Coastal Commission approval, which may occur in 2019.
