Sneaking it in under a separate application?
Location: South side of Rocklin Road, approximately 200 feet west of Havenhurst Circle in the Cresleigh Sierra subdivision. (approx. 200 feet east of the college overflow parking lot)
Application Received: June 15, 2021
The property owner is Sierra Joint Community College District. The applicant is USA Properties Fund, Inc. who, along with other College Park developers, donated to Joe Patterson’s 2020 election campaign…
USA Properties is already in contract with Sierra College! There hasn’t even been any public hearings on the College Park project!!
The project is a request for approval of a Design Review to construct a 180-unit (4-story) affordable “senior community” (low rent apartments) on a 7.3-acre portion of a larger 13.4-acre parcel. The site is located within the boundaries of the College Park project, which is being processed concurrently. College Park is a proposed multi-entitlement project totaling approximately 108 acres in eastern Rocklin in two locations along Rocklin Road. As the approval of College Park would create the 7.3-acre project site and rezone the property to allow for development and operation of a senior care facility, the College Park project is required to be approved prior to the approval of the proposed Design Review.
Note: Senior housing facilities generate significant impacts on local fire and police for 911 medical emergency calls. Lots of sirens already in this area.
The site is accessed via a single driveway entrance (in/out) on Rocklin Road.
