38th Street 11th Annual Blood Drive!

Posted by on 6:07 pm in East Sac, Events, Fab 40's | 1 comment

38th Street 11th Annual Blood Drive!

I love what our neighbors do for the community and the annual blood drive on 38th Street is a perfect example. I don’t know how many years I’ve participated but I look forward to giving a pint every year for such a good cause. I hope to see many of my neighbors there this year. Here is the email I received from the organizers.   Dear Friends and Neighbors, We like to think the 38th Street Blood Drive is a party, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.  We’ll have tents and tables on the front lawn, and two bloodmobiles parked on the street.  As usual, we’ll be grilling sausages and pouring our favorite beverages.  This is our eleventh annual drive.  It is the longest running neighborhood blood drive in Sacramento.   It occurs Thursday, October 3rd,  from 3:00-7:00.  To schedule an appointment, please go to bloodsource.org/drives and enter location code M597.  If you prefer, please call us at 916-451-5507 or email alicemcauliffe12@gmail.com with your preferred time and I’ll schedule an appointment for you.  If you have any friends who would like to donate, we’d be happy to schedule them as well.  Anyone 17 or older can donate.  Those who are 16 can donate with parental permission, using a form available on the bloodsource.org website.  Please remember to bring a photo id and drink plenty of fluids beforehand.  If you have any questions about eligibility, please call 800-995-4420 and ask for the “Nurse of the Day”.  If possible, please make an appointment so we have no gridlock and we know how many folks to expect.  We look forward to seeing you and having a good time.  We are honored and touched that  you continue to support this very worthwhile cause.  We do this in memory of my wonderful mom, Rosemary Lonczak, who lived years longer as a result of numerous blood transfusions.  Sincerely, Alice and Pat McAuliffe...

Sutter Park Home Pricing!

Sutter Park Home Pricing!

If you haven’t seen the news yet, Sutter Park has released their home pricing to the public and has just opened their sales office (appointment only)! The single story Garden homes have already sold out. Those had started in the low $700’s. The Garden Residence 2 start at $785,000 and the Garden Residence 3 start close to $900,000. The Classics Residence 1 starts at $815,000, the Residence 2 is sold out of the current release and the Residence 3 starts at $1,075,000. The Traditional Residence 1 is sold out for the current release, the Residence 1x starts at $1,145,000, the Residence 2 starts at $1,100,000, Residence 3 at $1,262,000 and Residence 3 at $1,311,000. This should give buyers the opportunity to either make a purchase or make the decision that it’s more than they were expecting and then buy one of the older homes in East Sac or a new home elsewhere. I would love to hear other peoples thoughts now that the prices are released to the public. What do you think? Are you going to buy one?...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Construction Moving Along…

Sutter Park Neighborhood Construction Moving Along…

Have you been paying attention to the development in Sutter Park Neighborhood? The construction is moving along nicely. They have the model homes framed in and the first release of homes have their foundations poured and they will probably start framing those homes soon too. The sales office is in place and should be ready to open in the coming weeks. They have already started the sales process with the first pre-approved buyers and word has gotten out all over East Sac as more buyers get in contract. It will be interesting to see how many units are pre-sold by the time they open the sales office. I’m guessing that it will be a decent amount. What’s your thoughts? How many do you think will be in contract before they even get the sales office...

Sutter Park Construction

Have you been watching the construction taking place in East Sac’s Sutter Park? Things are starting to happen in there and it’s going to get very exciting over the next few months! If you aren’t already on the builders list of pre-approved buyers for one of the homes you might get left out when they finally release them to the public. The list of eager buyers is long and I predict that these homes are going to go fast despite the premium prices they will be sold for. This shot is of the foundations for the Classic homes that will be on the corner of F and 53rd...

East Sac Fab 40’s 4th Of July Parade 2019

East Sac Fab 40’s 4th Of July Parade 2019

Get ready to kick off the summer with hundreds of your favorite neighbors at the East Sac Fab 40’s 4th Of July Parade! Once again, the parade will start at 11:00 on 41st Street between J and M Street. The parade will do a big loop onto J Street, down 42nd Street, around Folsom Boulevard and then finish where it started on 41st Street. Then it will breakout into a large block party with live bands and people milling in the streets and visiting with their neighbors. When we call it a parade what we really mean is a bunch of festive neighbors ambling along together and a few people sitting on the sidewalks or front lawns watching the masses of revealers doing the slowest walk around the block as possible. There are usually more people in the parade than watching it so come out and join us. The weather this year is going to be perfect for being outdoors so I expect record levels of turnout this year. This will also be a great opportunity to have a block party and hang out with your neighbors so take advantage of a 4th of July that’s not over 100 degrees and get outside early and often on this amazing day!

We’ve got new updates on Sutter Park this morning!

Sutter Park Sales Office and Model Homes

Sutter Park Sales Office and Model Homes

Tim Lewis Homes has confirmed that they will be building model homes and a sales office for Sutter Park. This is a shift from what I heard they were originally planning of doing where they would pre-sell homes without model homes to tour. They have done this at some of their developments but I’m very happy that we will have model homes to look at in Sutter Park. The model homes for the Traditional Homes will be on lots 47 and 48. The model homes for the Classic Homes will be on lots 42, 43 and 44.  The model homes for the Garden Homes will be on lots 39 and 40.  The sales center will be on lot 46.  The Custom Home lots have already been selling and they are down to just 5 remaining lots out of the original 12 available! One of the lots that had already sold went to a local investor who plans on building a custom 4,500 square foot home on the .36 acre site. He listed it on the MLS and is already in negotiations to pre-sell that home for $2,250,000!  If this is any indication of what the demand is in this development, all of these houses are going to go quickly for record setting prices.  Let me know if you would like me to send you the links to the current lot listed for sale for $729,000 or the custom home listed for...

How much would you pay for an empty lot in Sutter Park?

How much would you pay for an empty lot in Sutter Park?

The custom lots in Sutter Park will be going on sale very soon. How much would you pay for one of them? These are the few lots in the North East corner that are not being developed by Tim Lewis Homes. The lots will be ready for building on them and a new owner can hire their own contractor to build their dream home as long as it meets the Sutter Park neighborhood building requirements. The lots that are going up for sale range in size from .25 acres up to .42 acres (10,800 square feet to 18,700 square feet). How much would you pay for a large buildable lot in East Sac’s new Sutter Park neighborhood? How much do you think they will actually sell for?...
