East Sacramentans peppered Riverview Capital Investments with questions and suggestions. The company wants to develop the East Sacramento area north of the train tracks. The land is currently an undeveloped meadow. Several projects have failed in the past, mainly because of neighborhood resistance. Serious concerns surround development of this area such as sewage, traffic, project design and costs to the city. The company is on a fact finding mission at this point. The final design is pending.
Riverview Capital Investments is listening to the community. Our job, however, is to make sure that any project that gets approval meets the needs of the citizens and does not destroy the fabric of our neighborhoods.
On a side note: I was asked what my dream project would look like for the area. Is it impossible to think that an urban farm could be created? A farm much like Soil Born?
