REQUEST:

Department of Transportation is pursing the abandonment of portions of existing road right-of-way (ROW) within the Arden Park area, a neighborhood located in the Arden Arcade area of unincorporated Sacramento County.  The portion of the ROW to be abandoned extends beyond what is needed for public transportation purposes including sidewalks.  A portion of ROW will be retained so that sidewalks could be constructed if there was ever a desire to do so in the future.  The width of the proposed ROW will be consistent with the requirements for this class of roadway, defined as Local Streets in the Circulation Element.  California Government Code Section 65402 requires the County planning agency (i.e., Planning Commission) to determine if a proposal to abandon a public ROW is in conformance with the General Plan and report the Commission’s finding of conformance to the Board of Supervisors who will then take final action on the proposal.

Review of Sacramento County’s 2017-18 Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan.

REQUEST:

The County Executive’s Office has prepared a Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) that will be adopted as part of Sacramento County’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2017-18. The CIP review process is being conducted as set forth in Section 21.15 of the Sacramento County Code. The review process consists of the following three steps: 1) the Board of Supervisors reviews the Five-Year CIP for budgetary concerns and refers the Five-Year CIP to the Planning Commission; 2) the Planning Commission determines if the Five-Year CIP projects are consistent with the Sacramento County General Plan and forwards the findings back to the Board; 3) the Board receives the Planning Commission’s findings and adopts the Five-Year CIP prior to appropriation of funds. The Board of Supervisors reviewed the draft Five-Year CIP on April 11, 2017 and directed the County Executive’s Office to forward those new CIP projects not previously reviewed for General Plan consistency to the Planning Commission.

 

5:39 PM Board Action: James Shelby/ Donn Reiners - Approved the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) by Resolution No. 2017-COPC-0002 and requested the County Executive present the findings of the Planning Commission to the Board of Supervisors.
