By Curtis Manes, Citrus Heights–
[RE: City Council votes 4-1 to sell large Sylvan Corners lot to housing developer; Jan. 17th] Who the heck came up with that idea? That has to be the stupidest thing that I’ve ever heard of.
Who in their right mind would buy a 35×50-foot or a 40×50-foot lot to build a home on? And at $300,000 to $400,000 as reported. That’s the size of my two-car garage.
The city should have held onto that property because the Sylvan elementary school is going to have to expand in the years to come as the area population grows. Why wasn’t the public allowed to vote on this instead of the politicians running this city?
*Editor’s note: Potential lot sizes described by the developer are 35×75-foot and 40×75-foot.

Mark M.– Once again our leaders have spoken, by selling the property they purchased with our tax dollars! Who was the clown that decided to vote no on this sale, just curious? Get your job back when the circus comes to town and move on! Thanks!
Keri L.– I have yet to hear from one person who thinks this is a good idea.
Ed G.– Looks like another failure by the city. Instead of a mixed use and maybe some land for the cemetery nothing but a fancy condo project. At least the city can get out of this debacle at a little better than break even.
