Gamble Creek Village is intended to be a sustainable, self-contained rural village, embracing traditional small-town character. Our concept envisions a community with clustered housing and a vibrant local town center with restaurants, shops and office space. Gamble Creek Village is the antidote to 'urban sprawl' where growth is fragmented and random, negatively impacting surrounding areas and the environment. Gamble Creek Village is not another commuter suburb or disconnected gated development; it is envisioned to be a true community with schools, a town center, employment opportunities and services that support agriculture with its lifestyle and traditions, while embracing future technologies and opportunities. Preservation of native habitats and open spaces is paramount, and the development of recreational opportunities with a closer relationship to nature, are a priority. Walkability, accessibility, connectivity -- an intentional community --this is the vision for Gamble Creek Village.
An Agricentric Community
As an 'agricentric' community, neighborhoods within Gamble Creek Village will have easy access to local farmer's markets and the development of technology-enabled agriculturally-oriented businesses and employment centers will be encouraged. Agricultural lands, large areas of open space, parks, miles of creek-side trails, walking paths and significant recreational opportunities will preserve the natural features of this special Northeast Manatee County land.
