New College Campus

If all works out it, appears we may have a new college campus in the area in the future, and that is very good news.

“Sacramento County supervisors, on a 4-1 vote Wednesday, gave new life to a controversial plan to build a four-year college and housing on more than 2,000 acres of undeveloped land east of Rancho Cordova.

“The vote on the Cordova Hills project overturned an earlier planning department decision. Planners had asked the supervisors to uphold their rejection of the project based on its location outside the urban policy area.

“Despite the supervisors' vote, developers are a long way from turning thousands of rolling acres of eastern Sacramento County into housing and the new home of the University of Sacramento, run by the Legionaries of Christ.

"All that we did today is allow an application to be filed," said Paul Hahn, who heads the county's municipal service agency.

“The project faces further hurdles once specific building plans and environmental studies are completed.”
