SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Fair Oaks EcoHousing, a new cohousing community of 30 homes, was unanimously approved by the Sacramento County Planning Commission on April 13th by a vote of 4-0. Not one individual showed up to object to the project. Commissioner Eric Guerra called it “a wonderful neighborhood that will raise the quality of life in Sacramento County.” This is the first time cohousing will be available in the Sacramento suburbs.

This environmentally friendly infill project is sponsored by a group of 11 local households, who are all investors as well as future residents. The project had previously received unanimous approval from the Fair Oaks Community Planning Council (CPAC) and “enthusiastic, unanimous approval” from the Sacramento County Design Review Advisory Committee (DRAC) in September 2014.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - Witnesses reported pandemonium when a semi-truck caught low-hanging power lines, downing several poles on San Juan Avenue, just meters from the intersection with Greenback Lane on Friday, April 17th.

Kelly Webster, the owner of the UPS Store located just in front of the accident, said the poles were snapped “like twigs,” as the truck rumbled by at approximately 9 a.m. “As sparks flew, people were running from their cars when in reality their car was the safest place to stay in that situation. It was amazing no one died,” she added.

Webster said that a number of individuals remained in their vehicles until it was confirmed that the power had been shut off. Citrus Heights Police Department responded quickly and effectively according to Webster, and SMUD erected new poles and power lines in just a few hours.

“Power was back on by 5 p.m. and it is as if nothing ever happened,” said Webster.

The 5-0 final vote means that a new city hall will be built on Stock Ranch Road, just several hundred feet from its current location at Greenback Lane and Fountain Square Drive, which will become the site of a new medical office building for Dignity Health.

She connects with the audience and they get to know her personally through her music. Rimes has a great love of all types of music and admires the work of many artists: “I cover Janis Joplin’s version of Summertime, and that’s probably one of my favorite songs to perform live.”

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - City officials say that Citrus Heights residents would save a significant amount of money if the City Council approves a proposed new city hall and medical office building at their next meeting on March 26th.

Anti-Domestic Violence Activist Named Woman of the Year

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - “Imagine a woman who…” That’s the unfinished sentence on the wall at the headquarters for A Community for Peace, led by Executive Director Elaine Whitefeather who was named Woman of the Year on March 9th by State Assemblyman Ken Cooley.

The rest of the wall is filled with the writing of domestic violence victims who completed a series of workshops at A Community for Peace and completed the sentence with notions like, “Knows who she is and owns who she is,” or, “Chooses to be a survivor instead of a victim.”

The symbolic wall of words speaks volumes to the reasons Whitefeather was honored at the State Capitol for her work as a voice and helping hand for victims of domestic violence in the greater Sacramento area. The wall, she says, is representative of victims being able to break the rules and think outside the box.
