A final community meeting to discuss the potential relocation and construction of a new city hall for Citrus Heights has been scheduled for April 30.

The meeting is the last in a series of City-hosted community discussions, following a proposal by Dignity Health last year to build a 66,000 square feet medical office building in place of the existing hall on Fountain Square Drive.

Although a final decision is not expected until July, the city council selected a preliminary “preferred design” and site for the proposal at an April 10 study session, choosing 7625 Antelope Rd. as the best location to move city hall.

While council members in favor of the site selection mentioned economic reasons as a primary motivator, Councilwoman Jeannie Bruins was the only one to vote against the Antelope Road site, commenting that a city hall “doesn’t fit” the residential-zoned area. Several residents also spoke out against the Antelope Road location in their public comments.

In an update posted on CitrusHeights.net, the City is encouraging community members to attend the April 30 meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Center at 6300 Fountain Square Dr. Attendees are also invited to come at 6 p.m. for an opportunity to review plans for the medical office building and city hall.
