Hearings to commence for Sacramento's Curtis Park Village

By Jim Wasserman

The Sacramento Planning Commission has scheduled a Feb. 25 hearing on the environmental impact report for proposed development Curtis Park Village, and an April 1 hearing before the City Council, developer Paul Petrovich said this week.

The hearings are only to certify the EIR, not to recommend approval or approve the 72-acre project on the abandoned site of the former Western Pacific Railyard. The project between two historic city neighborhoods - Land Park and Curtis Park - proposes 500 residential dwellings, a major grocery store and several smaller retail outlets, said Petrovich, owner of Sacramento-based Petrovich Development.

The development has been the object of some controversy among the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association, which says the plan is too suburban in character to mesh in with the area neighborhoods.

Nonprofit builder and property manager Bridge Housing of San Francisco is the project's first builder - planning 90 senior apartments if the development wins city approval.
