Both sides in the fight over a proposed housing community in East Sacramento faced off at a pair of meetings. 

The meetings were loud and at times chaotic as foes of McKinley Village, a development of more than 300 homes slated for a football shaped piece of land ringed by the Capitol City Freeway and the Union Pacific Railroad.  

The Sacramento Bee reports opponents flooded the halls and shouted down proponents of McKinley Villiage.  

They even squelched the voices of their own who appeared to attempt for a compromise, like Paul Noble, who heads the East Sacramento Improvement Association, when he appeared ready to accept a bike access tunnel at Alhambra Boulevard instead of the most costly and contentious vehicle and bike tunnel.  

Opponents of the village say their current plan connecting to two residential neighborhoods cause traffic and noise problems.
