Q&A: What’s the latest news on Studio Movie Grill opening in Citrus Heights?

Sentinel staff report-- The addition of a new 49,000-square-foot Studio Movie Grill on Auburn Boulevard near Interstate 80 is likely the most significant commercial project planned for Citrus Heights in 2019, unless announcements are made about development at the old Sylvan Middle School property or redevelopment at Sunrise Mall. So what's the latest news on when the new theater will open? In an update to The Sentinel last month, Studio Movie Grill spokeswoman Lynne McQuaker said the company's new Citrus Heights location is set to open in the third quarter of 2019.

Citrus Heights medical building on track to open in late spring

Sentinel staff report-- The long-awaited completion of the Dignity Health medical office building on Greenback Lane is now just a few months away from becoming a reality. Dignity Health Spokeswoman Brooke Burgess told The Sentinel last week that the three-story medical building is expected to open its doors to patients starting in late spring, 2019. When complete, the massive 68,000-square-foot building will offer primary and specialty care services, and is expected to bring 170 professional jobs to the city. "We're all very excited to anticipate the opening of the medical office building this spring," said Mayor Jeannie Bruins, who was recently re-elected to her fifth term on the City Council in November and subsequently appointed by her colleagues to serve a one-year term as mayor. "This will bring top-notch medical services to the people of Citrus Heights and meet a need that's existed for a long time...

Plans approved for new surgery center in Citrus Heights

Sentinel staff report-- Construction on a new 16,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center in Citrus Heights could begin as early as next month, following a unanimous decision by the Planning Commission earlier this month to allow the project to move forward. The surgery center will be located on the currently vacant, 2.3-acre lot at the corner of Stock Ranch and Sylvan roads. The design approved by commissioners includes a single-story floor plan with a patient drop-off and pickup location and covered decorative awnings, along with at least 70 parking spots and a new driveway on Stock Ranch Road. Commissioners voted 5-0 on the proposal following an uneventful public hearing on Dec. 12 where the only public comment was made by the project's developer, Capital Partners Development Co. The adjacent 84,000-square-foot Small Business Administration building and the new City Hall in Citrus Heights were also constructed by the same developer. The site at 7435 Stock Ranch Rd. is owned by California C&S Properties, with the project’s applicant listed as Texas-based United Surgical Partners International, which has...

Citrus Heights Planning Commissioners split over low-income housing proposal

Sentinel staff report-- Following a public hearing attended by about 50 people Wednesday night, Citrus Heights Planning Commissioners issued a split vote over a key aspect of a controversial low-income supportive housing project proposed for a 2.3-acre former Christmas tree lot on Sunrise Boulevard, near Oak Avenue. While commissioners voted 4-0 to approve a site plan and design review permit for the 47-unit project proposed for 7424 Sunrise Blvd., commissioners were split 2-2 over whether to approve a "concession" request from the developer to allow parking within a setback zone closer to adjacent residential homes than city regulations currently allow for. Without the parking concession, the developer says the project would be forced to drop in size to 40 units and the project would become “financially infeasible to build or operate.” The proposal must still be heard by the full City Council next month for a final vote on whether the project can move forward. The proposal, called Sunrise Pointe, seeks to provide permanent housing and on-site supportive services for...
