East Sacramento Asked These Questions About McKinley Village, Timeline for Answers: Unknown

Riverview Capital Investments representatives Megan Norris and Bret Hogge met with more than 25 neighbors to discuss the McKinley Village/Lanatt development.

The developers presented no new plan, but did ask for feedback on how to make a previous plan better. Because of limited time, ESP framed the meeting as a “question session” and requested that Riverview research the questions and give us the answers at a later time.

ESP will publish the answers as soon as we receive them. Below are the questions. If you have any additional comments or questions, please forward them to ESP and we will direct them to the developer.

    I suppose this is not the place to make comments against this project, but perhaps this could also be considerd the biggest question: Why place any buildings on the site and not leave it as it is now, a green, open space that gives relief to all who pass by on the interminable freeways and gridlock? Of course the obvious answer is that this is a development group with profit margins and a need to build without concerns for the overall community effects of more unnessesary development with its concurrent traffic problems and issues.
    My first involvement in community issues was fostered by the outcry against the original development on this 48 acre space then called Centrage. Later there was a second and perhaps third try at development in that spot. Is there any community disagreements and outrage over this current one? Thank you for any and all responses to my concerns.

    I have yet to hear from any residents in East Sacramento or Midtown who are not against this project.

    Based on the information provided, it will be a bad choice for it’s residents and the traffic will significantly impact the quality of life for East Sacramento residents. Particularly those, like me, who live on the periphery.
