SACRAMENT’S CURTIS PARK VILLAGE…BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME!

SACRAMENT’S CURTIS PARK VILLAGE…BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME!

As the time grows closer for a vote at the Sacramento City Council, there is an escalating fervor regardingthe Petrovich development known as Curtis Park Village. The chasm between the fans of this development and the critics is growing as well. Much of the chatter is really a result of misinformation (intentional or accidental is another topic).Probably the biggest hotbed is the toxic issue within the site. When originally tested by the city, Petrovich was told that there was 80,000 cubic yards of toxic soil. After 2000 railroad cars were loaded up with said soil and sent to Utah, it was thought to be clean. However, upon subsequent testing, at total of 240,000 cubic yards was found…a substantial increase in costs, considering the expenditure so far just for clean up has already totaled 14M dollars! At this point, you would think that Petrovich would have thrown his hands up and abandoned the project. He didn’t. He researched and found the accepted practice of digging a very deep hole (50′), lining it and filling it with the toxic soil. Finally, a toxic proof barrier is put over it, it is sealed and clean soil is put on top. This has been done over 200 times without a flaw. A park will be placed in this section of the development – all other residential areas will have clean dirt.The other misconception is the amount of traffic this development will incur. The traffic study shows that with the exception of Sutterville Road, this plan will have zero impact or will improve the flow. Bus lines will be rerouted from 24th Street to...

SACRAMENTO’S BIG BUILD

Sacramento’s skies have always been busy. In past years, air force bases ruled as well as the Executive Airport. While we no longer enjoy sonic booms and military jets screaming across the skies, we do lay claim to the Sacramento International Airport. As with all airports, they easily get outdated and Sacramento’s airport is no exception. The most recent completed A Terminal is only 10 years old, and due to limited automobile traffic issues, is already outdated. Terminal B is no longer viable and for that reason, is being replaced.The Big Build is truly something to boast about! This remarkable structure will replace a 216,000SF building with a 669,000SF structure. The architecture is reflective of Sacramento’s famous canopy of trees. Interestingly, parts of the ceiling has been built from a recovered old bridge, consisting of 100,000 board feet of wood milled in 1817. In fact, the airport has a goal of attaining a LEED Silver and is within points of doing so. Eight million dollars have been set aside for art within the structure. Two million dollars of this allotment will be set aside, using the interest to maintain the art.While this may seem to be an odd time for such impressive expenditure (the total cost is one billion dollars and is coming in at budget), this is paid for by revenue generated by the airport itself and by law, cannot be spent on other projects. There is much to admire about this project, so please click here to learn more! Don’t ask about the red rabbit…so far no one I have chatted with get...
