CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The City of Citrus Heights, in partnership with the Orangevale Recreation & Park District and the Sunrise Recreation & Park District, will host a community open house on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. The open house will take place from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Sunrise Tech Center Multi-Purpose Room located at 7322 Sunrise Boulevard in Citrus Heights. Community members can drop by anytime during the Open House to learn about the project and provide feedback on the planned trail.

The City of Citrus Heights is currently in the process of preliminary design and environmental analysis for the Citrus Heights Electric Greenway Trail Project, a 2.9 mile multi-use paved trail that largely follows an existing Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) electric transmission corridor. The trail will span between Arcade Creek Park Preserve to the west and Wachtel Way to the east. This project will provide connections to several community parks, schools, shopping centers, and neighborhoods along the corridor.

Master planning for seven public parks and open spaces including; Tempo Community Park, Sundance Natural Area, Streng Avenue Open Space, Northwoods Park, C-Bar-C Park, Woodside Oaks Park, and Olivine Drive Open Space Site is part of this planning effort. These parks will be studied for existing and potential future amenities.

This project builds upon several interrelated efforts including the Creek Corridor Trail Project, Pedestrian and Bikeway Master Plans, and Mitchell Farms Development Project. The project is part of a multi-year city effort to incorporate a system of dedicated paved trails into the larger transportation network.
