Due to the ongoing struggles of this neighborhood and its associaitons, it has become a little confusing as to when the meetings are and what they are covering.  I thought I would post this in order to clarify the dates and topics.

February 11th at 6:30
Holy Spirit School, 3920 West Land Park Drive
Land Park Community Association Membership meeting
This meeting will be to consider the 4 amendments to the bylaws introduced by the Renaissance committee.

Hopefully this will be helpful.

COME TO THE LPCA MEETING!

August 20, 2008

For those Land Park residents that want to keep up with the latest “goings on” in Land Park, Land Park Community Association invites us all to attend their next meeting, August 20th at 6:30 at Holy Spirit School. These meetings are always informative, interesting and a little rambunctous.  The first part of the meetings are usually a little dry while the board approves the previous month’s (this time 2 months) minutes, but after that, anything goes.  Tomorrow night will feature a speaker from Parks and Recreation discussing the disappearing geese and the Adopt-A-Park program.  See you then!

 

LAND PARK NEWS

The following are excerpts from the Land Park Community Association newsletter.

 BROADWAY BRIDGE PROPOSAL

According to SACOG, the bridge will create approximately 45,000 daily auto trips on surface streets, taking cars from the Highway 50 Pioneer Bridge. As anticipated, SACOG adopted the plan, but the reference to a Broadway Bridge was struck. Instead, a more generic term–“river crossing”–was inserted in place of “Broadway Bridge”. This is good news and supports our position that transit alternatives and other locations have not been fully studied. Mayor Heather Fargo and Councilmember Lauren Hammond both expressed reservations regarding the Broadway Bridge and the Truxel Bridge (which would go from downtown to Natomas). Both said, despite their reservations, they were voting in favor of the MTP 2035.
Mayor Fargo has consistently supported the Broadway Bridge in the recent past. However, she suggested the term “river crossing” for both the Broadway and Truxel bridges, although she appeared more concerned with the Truxel Bridge. The Mayor said studies have not been done and there has not been enough vetting with the public. She disagreed that the Truxel Bridge should be an alternative to I-5, and stated Truxel Avenue is a residential street, whereas Broadway is a commercial street. She noted the City of Sacramento would have the final say on whether or not these bridges were built.
West Sacrmento’s Mayor Caldabon said a specific project must be identified in the MTP -“Broadway Bridge” – for the City of West Sacramento to collect developer fees from the numerous projects in his city. Despite his explanation, the terminology was changed to the generic term of “river crossing,” giving more flexibility to what might be proposed in the future.
LPCA’s work on this issue remains considerable in the months ahead. LPCA and other neighborhoods associations will continue to work with our Councilmember, Rob Fong, who is leading this effort. With many residents throughout the City of Sacramento concerned about both bridges, they could become issues in the mayoral race.  LPCA will continue to work with Councilmember Fong, councilmembers from both cities, and others to obtain a careful and thorough study with transit alternatives, such as dedicated bus lanes, rapid buses and other bridge locations.
