Posted by on Sep 28, 2017 in East Sac, Sutter Park | 0 comments

OK, we are all desperately waiting to see the new development in Sutter Park Neighborhood take shape. This will be an amazing sub-neighborhood of East Sac, tightly woven into our community. There have been delays, as there always are in developments like this. Here is the latest update from the land developers: Thank you for your patience as Sutter Health wraps up the responsible clean-up efforts of the former Sutter Memorial Hospital site. Sutter Health remains committed to cleaning the property to meet the regulatory standards necessary for redevelopment of the site into single family residential and City park uses. As part of the reuse conversion, areas requiring remediation and public agency oversight have been identified. Sacramento County Environmental Management Department (SCEMD) is providing lead agency oversight on environmental matters.  SCEMD, along with other contributing regulatory agencies will ensure the site has been properly cleaned. The environmental matters identified are located entirely on the site and include: ·         Lead soil near the original maternity building along F Street from old exterior paint ·         Diesel-related compounds found in two areas ·         Metals associated with a building wastewater recovery sump and concrete tank ·         Anti-scaling/bacteria agents associated with former cooling tower ·         Photographic fixer used in process solutions at crushed granite pit Under the direction and oversight SCEMD, Sutter Health and its environmental consultant team have implemented remedies to address these environmental matters. Currently, SCEMD, and other regulatory agencies are completing their review of the technical data to ensure the clean-up efforts are appropriate. It is anticipated grading work will begin soon to facilitate the future residential development.  For more information, please call our Sutter Memorial Hospital Clean-up project line at (916) 454-7528 All of this just means more of a wait for those that want to buy a home around Sutter Park, us real estate agents that want to help our clients buy one as well as all of the neighbors that are just curious to meet the new neighbors when they move...

We are just a month away from one of my favorite events of the year. This years Taste of East Sacramento 2017 will be the 9th year that the East Sac chamber has hosted this event. We’ve grown the event in leaps and bounds over the last several years, so much so that we’ve out grown our last two venues. This year it will be hosted in the brand new Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church at 616 Alhambra Blvd, right across from McKinley Library. It will start at 6:00 and run till 9:00 on Saturday July 22nd. As usual, there will be all of our favorite East Sac restaurants, breweries and wine from local vineyards as well as some of the newer providers of great tastes to our neighborhood. I’m going to get my tickets before the early bird pricing ends and I hope to see so many of my friends and neighbors at the event....

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I’m getting calls asking for details about the Fab 40’s Christmas Lights! The long holiday tradition of impressive light displays in the Fab 40’s is anticipated and enjoyed by so many neighbors as well as people that drive in from miles away to look at them. Some home owners in the Fab 40’s have already started putting up their lights and and more will join the displays over the next couple weeks. By the end of next weekend the homes will be ablaze with dazzling displays. You can drive up and down the streets (40th-49th, between J Street and Folsom Blvd.), wander at your leisure by foot or get extravagant and hire a horse-drawn carriage to enjoy the festive show the this amazing neighborhood puts on every year. Go on a weeknight an you won’t have quite as many people out at the same time or join the biggest gawking crowds possible on Christmas weekend. Bundle up, bring your hot chocolate and get into the holiday spirit with another amazing year of the Fab 40’s Christmas lights!   – 2017 Christmas update based on all the past questions: For all of those that want someone else to do the driving you have some options: Top Hand Ranch does horse drawn hayrides through the Fab 40’s. You can call them at (916) 655-3444 to make a reservation. They often book up well in advance. You can also take the Sac Brew Bike tour to see the lights and hit up some pubs as well.
