Curtis Park Village Update
The project most likely to have the greatest impact on our community is the Curtis Park Village project. The toxic dirt remediation in the rail yard is complete, and the project is moving forward. The next phase of construction will be site work, including installation of utilities, laying out of the streets and starting the commercial development.
SCNA supports small neighborhood serving stores and businesses in Curtis Park Village that will create a unique destination and reflect the surrounding community. We are opposed to the inclusion of large corporate chain retail stores and chain restaurants that have taken over most suburban shopping malls and would depend on a huge influx of new traffic from the greater Sacramento area in order to survive.
The SCNA Board has been working for years to help ensure that the Curtis Park Village development is in keeping with the rest of the Curtis Park community. We promote building homes in the Village that match the styles of existing homes in Curtis Park and that will fit seamlessly into the middle of a beautiful neighborhood built decades ago.
Curtis Park Village will create thousands of new car trips per day in and out of the site. SCNA has continually urged the City of Sacramento to implement traffic calming sooner rather than later in order to minimize the impact on our quiet neighborhood streets. Nothing will change the serenity of Curtis Park more than a huge incursion of new traffic and SCNA will lead the fight to keep our streets calm and safe.
