The land that lies south of Caldwell Avenue and in-between Court and West has been approved for commercial development for more than a decade.

Rick Schuil bought the property, on Visalia's Southside, in 2012. He noticed all of the new homes being built and saw an opportunity.

"Rooftops drive commercial development, we saw the rooftops coming in and we felt definite that there's a limited-not much development as far as retail and or service business has been done here since the 80's, so we did feel it was right for that," said Rick Schuil, developer.

The first phase of Cameron Creek Marketplace--a Jack in the Box restaurant and some street improvements were completed almost a year ago.

Schuil is happy with how things are going, but he would like to fill the 14-acre site with local, regional, or national stores. He says he hasn't planned for sites on the Southside of the property but envisions a large, national tenant there--possibly a hardware or Ag supply store.

"We are not an A market in Visalia, we're in Central California--we're a B market, but the A markets have been saturated and now we are getting attractive again for national development to come in and we see specifically at Cameron Creek Marketplace that coming into view," said

Mooney Boulevard may be the Visalia's main drag for retail and restaurants but Caldwell Avenue is another artery in the city.

Schuil says activity here, will really pick up in 2018.
