Folsom is growing! Construction is set to begin this week on two massive new housing developments south of Highway 50.
The projects will create nearly 11-thousand new homes and apartments, three public schools, two fire stations, a police station and 82 acres of office and commercial buildings.
The developments will eventually be home to 25,000 people, and increase the population of Folsom by a third.
Folsom Mayor Steve Miklos says it's been a long time coming.
