The poster was probably talking about the space shuttle program, but that ended years ago and things have stabilized. It was primarily Titusville/North Merritt Island that felt the brunt of that. Cocoa Beach is doing just fine like it always has.

Got it. So if anything, Merritt Island may become heavily developed.

2008 called. It wants its argument back

To help clear up any ignorance on the state of aerospace and defense on the space coast:

I don't think the area will see any major over population or development. As mentioned, Cocoa a Beach will likely not change too much in our lifetime. I could see North Merritt Island (above 528) developing more at some point, but not like Viera has more recently.
What I can see change is the Port, where different things are developing and expanding. This could have some impact on tourist congestion and the look and feel of the Port, but I doubt it will effect the surrounding areas too much in terms of population growth.

Thanks for your reply! Great summary and insight. I definitely can't wait to make CCB home.

Good overview, and a large part of why we like this area.

Sorry, put as a single professional I find it boring that Merritt island or cocoa beach have much to offer. They need more development. Just Zillow for places to rent and you see outdated options. I grew up in Titusville, and possibly moving back from DC to work at NASA. There is nothing new to excite my heart. I'm not asking for Miami Beach, just some cool, modern condos for those wanting to live near the coast instead of driving all the way to Orlando. The cocoa beach 2025 plan looks promising, but not even sure it ever happens until I'm old.

Perhaps supply and demand show that there are more needs for multi-roomed housing that appeals a bit more to families or seniors looking to have space for extended family visitors.
I as a middle aged family person, think there is a lot offered in this area. But if it's not for you, why complain? Just don't live there. You can always commute to work if a younger, single vibe is your preference.

Right, because a city should only cater to one demographic, and force everyone to long distance commute? Im not asking to change the core character of cocoa beach/space coast. It will always be the anti-thesis of glamy south florida. Just suggesting that there should be more options. Given the potential of the next great space era with Elon Musk and other private investments, there will be a need of options for younger workforce. Even the Cocoa Beach 2025 plan recognize this, but I havent seen or heard anything that have came to fruition yet.

Cocoa Beach is going to stay the same as it is for a long time. That means it probably won't over crowd, but it's not going to introduce anything new or exciting anytime soon either. I guess it's not a bad spot if you just want to live really close to a beach.
