Parkview Neighborhood Revitalization
The residents of Lancaster know the neighborhood, located between Sierra Highway and 10th Street West and Avenues J and K, as the Park View neighborhood because of the prominence of this middle school facility within the subject area. This neighborhood was mostly built in the late 1950s as part of the early development of the urban core of the City, whose development patterns were heavily influenced by the regional arterial of Sierra Highway bordering the easterly side of the subject area. The neighborhood’s characteristics include a variety of older established single and multi-family residential units, a mobile home park, a mix of office and service related uses combined with older “strip” commercial projects, multi-tenant commercial centers, office and professional buildings, stand-alone restaurants, churches, and industrial uses, several aging motels, and auto-related uses oriented to the traffic along Sierra Highway.
The primary objectives for the Park View neighborhood are: 1) to redevelop areas involving inconsistent patterns and densities of multi-family residential uses; 2) to mitigate the conflict of uses between the incompatible nature of some of the uses (e.g. hospital, mobile home park, schools, commercial strip centers and residences); 3) to develop programs for the redevelopment and rehabilitation of older commercial and residential properties; 4) to enhance circulation and access; 5) to ensure and facilitate the construction of new infrastructure to support neighborhood growth and future investment; and 6) and to create implementation tools and comply with environmental standards in order to realize the potential benefits from the resultant vision plan.
