Workshop Set On FO Blvd. Plan

Plan update, gateway monument design to be discussed Jan. 18.

Special to Carmichael Patch

Members of the public are invited to attend a special workshop next week being hosted by the Planning Division of the Sacramento County Community Planning and Development Department and the Carmichael-Old Foothill Farms Community Planning Advisory Council.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide residents with an update on the recently approved corridor plan and to gain input on design aspects of gateway monuments for Fair Oaks Boulevard that will welcome visitors to the Carmichael community.

Workshop information is as follows:

Time/Date: Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.

Location: , 5605 Marconi Avenue, Multi-Purpose Room

These efforts are underway as part of plans to revitalize and enhance Fair Oaks Boulevard as a “main street” for the Carmichael area. During the Special Workshop Department of Transportation staff will provide details on projects being designed for the “main street” effort and Planning Division staff will provide an update on the Fair Oaks Boulevard Corridor Plan, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in September.

The corridor plan was developed to help guide revitalization and enhancement of Fair Oaks Boulevard. The overall goal of the plan is to facilitate development of a pedestrian-oriented town center for the Carmichael community including a “main street."

“Main street” efforts are moving forward with Phase I and Phase II improvement projects for sections of the Fair Oaks Corridor Plan corridor area, including new gateway monuments; ; and major pedestrian, bicycle and roadway enhancements planned from south of Landis Avenue to Engle Avenue. The Phase 1 project is currently out to bid, and Phase 2 is expected to start construction in 2014.

Please feel free to contact Tricia Stevens at stevenst@saccounty.net or 874-2926 or Surinder Singh at singhsu@saccounty.net or 874-5462 for additional information about the corridor plan. Please contact Steve White at whitest@saccounty.net or 874-5354 for additional information pertaining to the proposed streetscape improvements.
