McKinley Village Approved But Does History Repeat Itself

McKinley Village Approved But Does History Repeat Itself

History repeats itself as another controversy raised up after commencing the unanimously approval of a new subdivision plan in East Sacramento- The McKinley Village.

Some Residents are very disappointed about the government’s approval considering the predetermined heavy traffic and safety concerns not just for the future home owners but as well as the people currently residing in the communities surrounding this location.

This site is enclosed by the Capital City Freeway and the Union Pacific Railroad Tracks’ main line. Heavy transit activities are expected much more when houses will be occupied and owners will start to move in and live there.

There had been several proposals for this site before which had been either denied for approval by the City Government or had been withdrawn by the developer for some reason undisclosed.

Phil Angelides- the plan developer and the previous state treasurer appeals before the City Government of Sacramento for consideration.

How safe will this village be considering its location and considering the fact that it is surrounded by freeway and railroad tracks? This is just one factor that the critics are raising up before this plan jumpstarts.

Because of the community appeal, plans are laid down to address concerns about the traffic condition and the road safety. This includes the installation of a vehicle tunnel which is proposed to be the main commercial corridor located on Alhambra Boulevard.

It was also proposed to put up an overcrossing freeway that will connect midtown’s 28th street and 40th street with a railroad underpass.

The developer will have these options considered. However, feasibility studies will be needed and implemented to analyze the proposal and weigh which will be the best option in terms of engineering and cost efficiency.

The city officials may have given the green light for this project however thorough plans should be completed and the best proposal should be given to get the full community’s support for McKinley Village.

It’s been factual that the government is on the side of pushing the plans as soon as possible. Will this be another case of Curtis Park Village? Will the developer be able to really jumpstart the plans in the earliest time possible or will it also takes almost a decade before this project will commence?

However it is, what will determine its initiation is the perfect plan which will not only benefit the developer and the government but also the majority of the people living in the community and it’s surrounding area. Everyone may not be pleased with the plans but it’s best that the majority will give a go signal on this project.

You can check out the developer’s website and learn more about the plan, design and development team.
