East Garrison: It's A Go!

MONTEREY, Calif., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Following years of intensive planning and public input, East Garrison, one of the first communities to be built on the former Fort Ord Army Base, is fully approved and financed and is today proud to say, "It's A Go!"

Quietly under construction for the last six months, the new mixed-use, mixed-income master-planned community of East Garrison is actively moving forward toward a planned opening in spring 2013 with its first new homes for sale.

"Now is the time to let our friends and neighbors know that all the hard work, community input and planning for East Garrison is today coming to fruition," said Dustin Bogue of UCP, LLC. "We are delivering on the commitments that have been made to this community by bringing East Garrison to reality."

Construction activities at East Garrison began in October 2011 with installation of infrastructure including utilities, streetlights, grading for roadways, paving of streets, sidewalks and more. This work is nearing completion, which will allow for the construction of new homes, parks and community amenities to begin.

Despite the challenging economic environment, UCP, along with the County of Monterey, have mapped out a strategy for success.

"We believe strongly that introducing new homes at East Garrison that are affordable to a broad segment of people living in Monterey County will give homebuyers the opportunity they have been hoping for: historically low-priced homes of uncompromising quality in a coastal environment," said Bogue. "In addition to the investment of the prior developers, UCP and MidPen Housing will invest $60 million in East Garrison, which has already created local jobs and will continue to stimulate the local economy."

The vision for East Garrison was the result of an extensive public planning process that received unanimous approvals and broad-based community support. As designed, the community will be an inclusive village embracing all ages and economic status.
