FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — APRIL 16, 2014 –

The City of West Sacramento will hold a public meeting about the process of updating its general plan at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 28, at the community center.

The updated plan is meant to guide city policy and growth patterns for years to come.

The public will also be allowed to give input on fourth specific growth areas:

– Stone Lock, consisting of about 215 acres of publicly-owned land along the barge canal near Jefferson Boulevard, mostly stretching east-west next to the canal;

– Pioneer Bluff, a corridor of old industrial uses, including petroleum “tank farms,” along the riverfront of the Sacramento River. The corridor stretches along South River Road from Stone Lock to the U.S. 50 freeway;

– Liberty Specific Plan area, a planned 1,900-unit, 450-acre area that’s part of the planned “northeast village” of Southport. It’s located against the river levee and also bounded by Davis Road to the south, the Clarksburg Branch Line Trial to the west, and to Linden Road and its subdivisions to the north;

– Seaway, a 270-acre project area at the Port of Sacramento. Current zoning allows for such uses as industry, business park and open space, but not housing. The property is located just south of the port’s turning basin – along Southport Parkway, west of Lake Washington Boulevard.

The general plan meeting will be held at the city community center, 1075 West Capitol Avenue.
