Members of the public are invited to attend a special Fair Oaks Corridor Plan workshop on Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Carmichael Library multi-purpose room.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide residents with an update on the recently approved corridor plan and to gain input on design aspects of gateway monuments for Fair Oaks Boulevard that will welcome visitors to the Carmichael community.
The workshop is hosted by the Planning Division of the Sacramento County Community Planning and Development Department and the Carmichael-Old Foothill Farms Community Planning Advisory Council.
These efforts are underway as part of plans to revitalize and enhance Fair Oaks Boulevard as a “main Street” for the Carmichael area. During the special workshop, Department of Transportation (DOT) staff will provide details on projects being designed for the “main street” effort, and Planning Division staff will provide an update on the Fair Oaks Boulevard Corridor Plan, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in September 2011.
The corridor plan was developed to help guide revitalization and enhancement of Fair Oaks Boulevard. The overall goal of the plan is to facilitate development of a pedestrian-oriented town center for the Carmichael community including a “main street.”
“Main street” efforts are moving forward with Phase I and Phase II improvement projects for sections of the Fair Oaks Corridor Plan corridor area, including new gateway monuments; improvements at the intersection of Marconi Avenue/Fair Oaks Boulevard; and, major pedestrian, bicycle and roadway enhancements planned from south of Landis Avenue to Engle Avenue.
The Phase 1 project is currently out to bid, and Phase 2 is expected to start construction in 2014.
