Controversial McKinley Village Heads Back to Sac City Council Tonight

Posted Tuesday, April 29th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

The controversial McKinley Village subdivision goes back to the Sacramento City Council tonight.

As developer and former state Treasurer Phil Angelides continues to get folks living in East Sacramento to buy into his project, the council is setting aside a couple of hours for public input at tonight's meeting.

McKinley Village calls for 336 housing units but no retail or office space, hotels or churches.  

If approved, it would be built on landlocked property north of the Union Pacific Railroad, south of Business 80, and west of Lanatt Street.  

Neighbors say the property is intended for industrial use and not suited for a housing development.

Also on agenda tonight are various motions and resolutions regarding construction details for the downtown entertainment and sports complex.

In addition, the council will consider amending the code to allow the owners of the Kings to put up digital billboards on city property, but the final vote for these items is not scheduled until May 13.
