City Hall Relocation

Possible New Location

Special City Announcement
Posted: 9/10/2014

We are pleased that so many have attended meetings throughout this past year on the potential relocation of the City Hall. While many attendees liked the potential site on Antelope Road, many of you expressed concerns and favored keeping City Hall near the other city facilities, such as the Community Center and the Police Department.

Since the last meeting, a potential new site has become available (shown below) and the city is inviting you to attend a meeting to learn more about this potential new site.

City Hall Public Information Meeting
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
6 to 7:30 p.m.
Citrus Heights Community Center
6300 Fountain Square Drive

All interested parties are welcome to attend this meeting.

We want to hear what you think about this potential new location!


Fair Oaks CoHousing Neighbors
Cohousing neighborhoods are composed of privately-owned homes clustered around shared open space and extensive common facilities. The Club House typically includes a dining room, kitchen, workshop space, children’s playroom, guest rooms, and lounge. It is the heart of the neighborhood for a variety of other activities. Cars are parked on the periphery of the site, making the neighborhood more pedestrian-friendly and kid-safe. Future residents are involved in the design and development so that it reflects their needs and priorities, creating a truly custom neighborhood.

EcoHousing a New Trend

Posted: 9/4/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Local residents submitted their planning application to Sacramento County on Monday, July 21st, to approve their design for a new environmentally friendly neighborhood on New York Avenue and Fair Oaks Boulevard in Fair Oaks. A group of nine families have been working with architect and international cohousing expert, Charles Durrett, on the design of their community.

The 30 new homes will range in size from two-bedroom flats to four-bedroom town homes, along with extensive community facilities and garden areas. The new community is unique in that it is being initiated by a group of local families that seek to live in a more socially and environmentally sustainable neighborhood than what traditional developers have been building in the Sacramento Suburbs.

Posted: 8/8/2014

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The newest location of Party City is now open and ready to Party! The big, shiny, new Party City store opened its doors to shoppers on July 22nd with over 12,000 square feet of every party item imaginable. Anything and everything that one could possibly want for decorating, gift-giving, themed parties and so much more is all under one convenient roof.

Brent Tracy, Party City district manager, along with Citrus Heights Party City store manager, Lewis Inouye, and their full new staff were all busy opening boxes and stacking shelves when Citrus Heights Messenger stopped by on the 22nd. When Brent Tracy and Lewis Inouye were asked how they would sum up the Party City experience, Tracy proclaimed that “Party City is your one stop party shop.” Then Lewis reiterated the company’s slogan; “Nobody Has More Party for Less," and I believe that most shoppers would agree.
