Rancho Cordova Development

A new development was recommended for approval by Sacramento County Planning Commission, consisting of about 1,400 acres, and best of all, it has plans for trail space connecting to the American River Parkway.

An excerpt from the Rancho Cordova Post article.

“The development plan includes 4,883 units of residential in various densities and 4.2-million square feet of other development, including 1.3 million square feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment venues and 2.9 million square feet of office space and fine art venues, among other things. The area would also include 480 acres of open space and parks and a network of biking and walking trails that would be conveniently linked to the American River Parkway and the Hazel Light Rail station.

“The project is located between Hazel Avenue and Prairie City Road south of Highway 50 and will be the first building venture for GenCorp. Sacramento County is preparing a final EIS for the County Board of Supervisors hearings that will occur later in the year. The project also will need approvals from the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Department of Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service before any more can be done.”
