Tonight City Council plans to have a discussion item on the agenda for McKinley Village issues, including the Revised Draft of the Environmental Impact Report (RDEIR). The link below is a March 3, 2017 submission to the city from the law firm opposing the city’s work on the McKinley Village EIR. East Sacramento Preservation understands the RDEIR to be insufficient on traffic analysis and issues and urges the city to properly address and mitigate traffic problems that will be cause by McKinley Village.
Below is a link to the March 3,2017 letter to the city.
Phil Angelides has no intention of adding a vehicle access at Alhambra. “We are not required to provide a bike and pedestrian tunnel, but we are. And the city–if they want to, if their analysis comes back and said it’s feasible, they can do it on a separate track. It’s up to themselves. Doing the vehicular access at Alhambra was never a mitigation (on the part of RCI),” said Megan Norris, Angelides spokeswoman. (East Sacramento News, 3/6/2014, page 2)
It’s clear to ESP that:
1. Angelides will not cut into his profit margin to help East Sacramento.
2. Councilman Steve Cohn and our city government are already analyzing funding to pay for the tunnel.
3. We will be stuck with the bill for this mitigation.
ESP suspects that Steve Cohn will dangle the tunnel as a negotiation point, to quiet opposition to the project, but he will be unable to guarantee any new vehicular access before the planning commission or council vote. With no legal requirement, no vehicle access will be built.
