Parkway Adjacent Township 9 Announcement

Street expansion funded
Published 5:46 am PDT Wednesday, May 14, 2008

A major street expansion to serve a planned 2,300-unit residential development in downtown Sacramento won $2.2 million Tuesday from the Sacramento City Council.

The council approved funding to rebuild North Seventh Street in the 65-acre redevelopment project, which will also include offices, stores and restaurants.

The money was promised earlier as a condition of the city's April application for $30 million in state bond funding.

Construction work at Township 9 is scheduled to begin this summer, with the first residential units opening in 2010.
