THERE IS A PROPOSAL TO MOVE CITRUS HEIGHTS CITY HALL OFF OF THE CURRENT CITY CAMPUS
According to Henry Tingle, Citrus Heights City Manager, our current city hall building has fallen into disrepair and it will cost about $6-7 million to restore the building to a usable state and meet Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) requirements. The city converted the building from Fountain Square Nursery for use as city hall and began using the building in 1998 and purchased it 2005.
City Council and City Manager want to demolish the existing Fountain Square City Hall, with its excellent proximity to the City Police and Community Center. They are proposing to build a new City Hall on Antelope Road in a rural, residential neighborhood that will negatively impact those residents.
KEEP CITY HALL NEXT TO CITRUS HEIGHTS POLICE STATION AND CITRUS HEIGHTS COMMUNITY CENTER.
WE ARE VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE A TRUE "CIVIC CENTER"
AS DESIGNED BY OUR CITY FOUNDERS - PER CITRUS HEIGHTS GENERAL PLAN; GOAL 21
STOP THE MOVE!!!
PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO HELPcontact us.
ANOTHER SMALL WIN IN OUR FIGHT TO KEEP CITY HALL AT OUR CIVIC CENTER!
Our Threat of a CEQA Lawsuit encouraged the Citrus Heights City manager and City Council to commission a full Environmental Impact Report on these two projects. As a result the City Council voted on August 14, 2014 to "take no action" pending the results of the E.I.R..
This Fight is far from over!
The next few months we will be researching alternative solutions to fund the new city hall or the renovation of the existing structures (see appraisal Pages 69 and 52) and alternative locations for the medical office buildings.
Thank you for your continued support for Save Citrus Heights City Hall. Over the next few weeks we will be collecting our Save City Hall signs so that they can be put into storage. Please contact us so that we can stop by and pick up your yard sign.
