A developer looking to build ten homes on an undeveloped two-acre parcel near Madera Park spoke with residents at a community meeting Tuesday.
Michael Sabbaghian told residents at a Jan. 18 meeting of the Citrus Heights Areas Seven Eight and Nine neighborhood association (CHASEN) that he purchased the parcel from the siblings of the previous owner, who had died. Sabbaghian intends to develop the land by completing a cul-de-sac at the end of Forgetmenot Court and completing Garryanna Drive.
Four homes could be built on the cul-de-sac, with another six on the southern end of the parcel, he said.
Sabbaghian said the project is still in its infancy and information is limited. He said introducing himself to the community was a first step in gathering input.
“I thought it was a great idea to connect with you guys, let you guys know who we are,” he said. “And as we move forward and have more information we can share with you, I want to hear what are your concerns so we can address them as part of the project.”
There is a ditch located at the southern end of the parcel, and Sabbaghian said he is working with the city’s environmental consultant to determine if it may require special permits.
He added the fire department may have additional requirements for connecting Garryanna Drive. Completing the street would give residents a second exit and entrance for the neighborhood. Currently, Glenn Tree Drive is the only way in or out of the area.
Sabbaghian said residents can expect to see some activity as the site is surveyed and personnel conduct an environmental study. He added residents may see construction vehicles at the site to remove dirt for another project this summer.
