A plan for a residential development in East Sacramento to replace Sutter Memorial Hospital can get started soon. 

The new Sutter Park development has a lot of support from neighbors in East Sacramento and now has the Sacramento City Council's stamp of approval.  

The subdivision, which will go up where the old Sutter Memorial Hospital now stands, was approved last night and will include up to 120 homes.  

Randy Sater with developer Stone Bridge Properties says his company received input from more than a thousand residents.

"This is the project that came out of those discussions with the neighborhood," Sater said. 

Public comment on the Sutter Park Neighborhood was all positive.

Sutter Memorial plans to close the hospital this winter and move it to its midtown campus.  

Home construction is slated to begin on the site in 2016 after the hospital complex is demolished.
