Citrus Heights city planners are currently reviewing a developer’s proposal to build 110 senior apartments on a five-acre property at 12057 Fair Oaks Blvd., located about a half-mile from Madison Avenue near Sunrise East Way.

Plans were resubmitted last month by the applicant, Craig Miers and George Scott Architects, LLP. Their initial application was received by the Citrus Heights Planning Department in November.
The property owner is listed as Gitta Ria Vaughn of Carmichael, and the project developer is the Roseville-based Ionic Enterprises, Inc.
“The developer considers this project to build 110 affordable senior apartments in Citrus Heights to be a very good fit for the city,” said Sam Stamas, corporate legal counsel for the developer. “We’re still a long way from all the required studies being completed.”
The project calls for a mix of one and two-bedroom units, with 599-square-foot and 823-square-foot floor plans. A community clubhouse would also be constructed on the site.
Casey Kempenaar, senior planner for the City of Citrus Heights, told The Sentinel the applicant’s resubmittal is currently being reviewed by the city and other involved agencies. He said the city is also awaiting a traffic study to be conducted, which could take up to two months.
“The city is very supportive of all efforts by developers to build affordable senior housing in the city,” Kempenaar said.
The Citrus Heights Planning Department requires independent review from fire, building safety, water and sewer. A public hearing for the project has not yet been set.
