Second, on Tuesday, February 22, 2011 from 2:00pm – 4:00pm at City Hall, the Sacramento City Council will hold a special workshop to hear about the findings from a Feasibility Study that considered Sutter’s Landing Park as a site for a new zoo. 

City Staff will present the results of the city funded study completed last year.  Zoo staff will then present the compilation of discussions that followed public hearings and Zoological Society Board meetings that took place as a result of the study. The Zoological Society has developed recommendations for the future of the Zoo for City Council members and members of the public to consider and offer feedback.
