The Sacramento City Council last night unanimously approved a plan to demolish the aging Sutter Memorial Hospital on F Street in East Sacramento and replace it with more than 100 homes.
As part of the Sutter Park project, the hospital will move to Sutter's growing midtown facility.
Paul Noble is with the East Sacramento Improvement Association. He told council members that the developers did a good job of reaching out to people in the neighborhood.
"They were actually looking for ideas and they listened to what the people had to say. They are supported by all east Sacramento residents and groups of which I'm aware of. I've heard no organized opposition to this project."
The hospital will be decommissioned this winter and home construction is expected to start in 2016.
