Latest McKinley Village Meeting More Civil Than Others

SACRAMENTO-

The normally tense dynamic at McKinley Village meetings was relatively calm Thursday night.

New designs and drawings were showed off at the meeting, hosted by City Council Member Steve Hansen, but neighbors are still concerned about the amount of traffic the planned development would bring.

Neighbors say closing half of B Street and allowing vehicle access through Alhambra Boulevard would help alleviate their concerns.

Developers say a solution isn’t as simple as that, saying it’s expensive and, according to an environmental impact study, unnecessary.

Among the more than 50 changes already made to the plan, some based on community input, the developer is ready to move forward with a bike and pedestrian tunnel at Alhambra Boulevard instead – something neighbors say is no compromise at all.
