City leaders project spike in Guadalupe’s population


GUADALUPE, Calif. - As housing continues to grow in Guadalupe, city leaders are projecting a spike in its city's population.

So far there are 250 homes that have just been built with another 60 houses on the way.

”This new development will bring in 5,200 people,” said mayor Ariston Julian of the City of Guadalupe.

In the next several years, Julian said there will be a total of 800 homes built.

Today's population in Guadalupe is nearly 8,000 resident, which includes some of the residents now living at the Pasadera development.  

“The community is going through a transition. I think it's a wonderful community. It's a small town feel. It's a very positive city,” said city administrator Todd Bodem of the City of Guadalupe.

Based on the Pasadera development and other proposed housing developments, Julian believes the population will exceed 11,000 within the next several years.

“We're looking at 12,000 residents within the current city limits,” Julian said.

The Pasadera development also includes about 280,000 square foot of commercial area along main street, on the same 200 acres of land which makes up the Pasadera development. 

As for job opportunities, Julian said new residents are turning to other cities.

“We're seeing there's a need for jobs, especially in Guadalupe. Most people work outside of Guadalupe. There are not a lot of jobs. The job market is not here other than the school district, some in the city and some private businesses,” Julian said.

But if the city continues its momentum, Julian believes job opportunities will increase once commercial development kicks in.

“There's going to be 18 acres of commercial development and that's going to happen in the next four to five years down the road,” Julian said.
