36th Annual California International Marathon

This Sunday December 2nd will be the 36th Annual California International Marathon! Get ready to cheer on 10,000 runners completing this marathon through our amazing city. Also get ready for some serious road closures! If you thought the Run to Feed the Hungry made it tough to navigate the streets, you haven’t tried to cross town when the CIM is going on. For us East Sac residents, the key times are the closing of J Street from 8:00 am until 1:30 pm. This closes J Street from the bridge to Fair Oaks Blvd all the way to Alhambra Blvd where the race takes a little jog to L Street and closes down L Street all the way to the finish line at the California State Capitol. Come out and cheer on the CIM which is certified and sanctioned by USATF and is a Boston Marathon and US Olympic Trials Marathon...

Sutter Park Neighborhood builders are Tim Lewis Communities and Urban Elements!

Sutter Park Neighborhood builders are Tim Lewis Communities and Urban Elements!

The official announcement for the builders of Sutter Park is out! Here is a link to the Sacramento Business Journal article by Ben van der Meer with all of the official information: https://www.bizjournals.com/sacramento/news/2018/11/19/sutter-park-developer-names-tim-lewis-urban.html Some of the most interesting details I read in the article are: Tim Lewis Communities will be building out 88 homes. The company is finalizing the architecture plans and hopes to have home plans on its website soon. They project that the first homes should be ready in about a year. I expect to see model homes sooner than that as well as designs, pricing and pre-sales. While the entry level condo price is projected they didn’t quote an entry level home price but they did give an estimated upper end of $1,800,000. Urban Elements’ Julie Young will be building out 11 condo’s above a 2,700 square foot retail section. Construction for the mixed-use development should start construction next summer. Prices for the smallest condo is projected to start at $265,000 and go up from there. It sounds like the retail space will host a cafe, coffee shop, salon and barbershop. There will also be 15 custom home lots for sale. These will probably fetch a premium for each lot and from what I’ve seen on the planning map, these are going to be larger lots. We are one step closer to seeing this great set of homes added to East Sac and I’m excited for my clients that have been waiting to buy in...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Builder!

Sutter Park Neighborhood Builder!

Word on the street is that the builder for Sutter Park Neighborhood has been selected!  I haven’t seen an official press release yet but I’ve heard that Tim Lewis Communities will be the builder for all of the homes in the development except for the little bit of mixed use commercial and condos.  Hopefully this puts us one step closer to hearing what the home designs, sizes and prices will be as well as seeing the construction starting to take shape. I know it’s not a lot of information, but it is a critical step to getting the information we all really want. I hope that by Spring we should see the model homes going up and hear what the prices and layouts will be!    You can Subscribe to my blog to receive all the updates that I get on the development. As an East Sac resident and very active Realtor I’ve been tracking and writing about this amazing development for the past 6 years. I have several clients that I’ll be helping buy their dream homes in Sutter Park Neighborhood as soon as that is a...

10th Annual 38th Street Blood Drive

The amazing McAuliffe family is holding their 10th Annual Blood Drive on Monday September 17th. I’ve already booked my time for giving blood and I look forward to seeing many of my neighbors there. Below is the email they sent me because hearing about the event in their words is better than me trying to paraphrase it.   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. Our tenth annual Blood Drive occurs Monday, September 17  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 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. Year after year, you keep coming back, even on 100 degree days.  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...

Sutter Park Neighborhood Updates

Posted by on 6:20 pm in East Sac, Sutter Park | 2 comments

I got some updates on the development at Sutter Park Neighborhood at the East Sac Chamber of Commerce. I know that so many of the neighbors (and those that want to be new neighbors) have been eager for new details so here is what I’ve gathered from listening to Randy Sater speak at our luncheon. The builder selection is almost complete and they should be able to announce who the builder of the homes and the mixed use space be next month. There will be one builder for the mixed use development and one for the rest of the housing except for the 11 custom home lots. There are some changes in the development and the original cottages design will be replaced by some more traditional homes. The mixed use section will have about 3,000 square feet of commercial and it is already fully leased to include some upscale food, a barber shop and more. There will be flats ranging from as small as 900 to 1,600 square feet above the retail, accessed by elevators. I’m very excited to hear about these since they will be the smallest and most affordable units in the development. Pricing is still to be determined but there should be properties starting in the $600,000’s and the larger custom homes will be over $1,000,000. The current mix looks like there will be 38 Traditional homes, 17 Courtyard homes, 29 Garden Homes, 11 Cottage homes and 11 Custom homes. They are predicting that we will have lots of new developments some time next month including more information on the recently updated official website of sutterparkneighborhood.com. The streets should be going in in a couple weeks and finished lots should be ready to build on by November. Hopefully we will see the first homes completed late next Spring. Stay tuned, this Fall should bring a lot of great developments to the...

The Taste of East Sac, one of my favorite events of the year, is this weekend on Saturday July 14th! This is the 10th year of the event. I’ve gone every year for the past 5 years and it just keeps getting better and better.  More than 40 local restaurants, breweries and wineries will be offering samples of the delicious treats that they serve up in their local establishments and it will be more than enough food and drink for everyone. There will be music, a silent auction and over 500 of your neighbors and friends mingling at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 600 Alhambra Boulevard right across from McKinley Library. The event starts at 6:00 and ends at 9:00 so don’t be late for this...

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

East Sac 4th of July Parade 2018

The weather has heated up and summer is almost here! We’re just a week away from the biggest neighborhood block party of the year.  The East Sac 4th of July parade is a great way to start off your summer celebrations. Come and hang out with hundreds of neighbors and see all the amazing ways that people show their festive red, white and blue spirits.  Unless things have changed from all of the past years, the parade will start at 11:00 on 41st Street just south of J Street. The block will be packed all the way down to M Street and probably even half way down the next block.  Once the parade starts it 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.  Do as we do after the morning parade and go have a great block party and get to know your neighbors better or make your way to Cal Expo in the evening (or somewhere with a good view of the sky above Cal Expo) and enjoy the fireworks show.  I love the community that we have here in East Sac and knowing more of my neighbors here than I have in all of my pervious homes combined. Given that I’m never leaving East Sac or my home now that I’ve discovered them, the number of neighbors I know will continue to grow over the years due to great events like this.  Here are some pictures from last year taking by the incredibly talented Carlos Castille of http://www.castillephotography.com! ...

C Street and Elvas Curve is Changing

C Street and Elvas Curve is Changing

Do you like taking the C Street to Elvas loop around the north end of East Sac to zip thought the neighborhood? It will take a little longer in the future when you come to a full stop after the intersection get reworked. After too many accidents where drivers didn’t make the full turn and ended up in a neighbors yard, the city has decided to change this from a curve to a full stop intersection there where Lanatt Street comes off of the C Street and Elvas change over. They will start on this work at the end of February so watch for the change and be prepared to...
