A subdivision that was approved by the Sacramento City Council a decade ago -but was never built- is once again moving forward.

The Jessie Avenue Subdivision was originally approved for 184 homes. The revised project includes 144 single family lots north of Interstate 80 and west of Dry Creek Road.

Brian Cooley represents Del Paso Homes -the project's developer.

"There is a lot of transition going on in this neighborhood from I think historically more of a rural area to there's a lot of subdivisions to the north and we think this fits into that character and helps with that transition."

Some neighbors of the project site, like Esther asked the council to include single-story homes.

"I'm not opposed to development there.  I do see that area should be used for housing. But, I consistent with other homes in the area" 

People who live there also asked that Jessie Avenue be extended through Dry Creek Road.

The council approved the map of the project on the condition single-family homes would be part of the project.

People who live in the area will have more opportunities to voice concerns as additional changes are made.
