Over 800 pages of documents were released for public review this week, as part of the City’s proposed plan to move City Hall to Antelope Road and allow a 68,000 square feet medical building to be built in its place.
The documents include a detailed assessment of environmental and traffic impacts at the new hall’s proposed location, as well as the medical office building location at Greenback Lane and Fountain Square Drive.
Environmental assessment portions of the documents make up nearly 700 pages, while the traffic study portion details the findings of Fehr & Peers in a 47-page report, with an additional 110 pages of appendices. Among other findings, the study determined that a new traffic light would be necessary if the new hall were to be built on Antelope Road, between Mariposa Avenue and Auburn Boulevard.
The Citrus Heights Planning Division included a statement along with the documents which indicated the proposal would require the City to amend its General Plan in order to change the land use designation from “public use” to “general commercial” on a portion of the proposed medical building site. The statement also said the City would need to amend its zoning code in order to allow public buildings at the residential-zoned Antelope Road site.
