The 2010 idling of the Davenport Cement Plant impacted the Davenport community and the local economy, causing the loss of jobs, County revenues and community benefits that defrayed infrastructure costs for Davenport residents. Through the development of a Coastal Restoration and Reuse Plan and in conjunction with the community, the County is now beginning a process to envision a future for the plant and surrounding 103-acre site. Our goal is to create jobs, community benefits and tax dollars for the benefit of residents of Davenport and the larger Santa Cruz community.
The County’s consultant team, led by RRM Design Group, has released the following Draft Restoration and Reuse Plan. A community meeting is planned for Nov. 8, 6pm at Pacific Elementary School to discuss the plan. Final adoption is subject to environmental review and action by the Board of Supervisors.
