Designs for the Village Park project have been returned from the county with comments and are being reviewed by District personnel. Currently they are considered to be at 65% and will need to be updated and returned to County design review. The Amphitheater design is likewise progressing through County design review. Construction is still expected to begin in the first half of 2021.
Construction for Jim Streng Park is awaiting a final construction timeline based on Covid-19 related delays with County design review; however, District staff estimates that construction will begin soon.
Measure J projects continue their review with Sacramento County. Swallow Way, which has been officially named Jim Streng Park, has received comments back from Sac County and staff has worked together with landscape architects to meet those requirements. The changes are minor and will not affect the overall park design. Review continues on the project at Village and Plaza Park, the Community Clubhouse, and the Veteran’s Memorial Amphitheater
