Listening Forum – Sand Creek Area
March 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join Antioch Mayor Sean Wright and Mayor Pro Tem Lamar Thorpe as they host a listening forum on the Sand Creek Focus Area.
In recent weeks, many residents have asked, “Why is the Antioch City Council approving a 4,000 unit housing development within the Sand Creek area?!” The short answer—were not.
In 2003, the city council then determined that up to 4,000 housing units would be allowed within what is called the Sand Creek Focus Area (SCFA). They also determined that 280 acres of the SCFA would be dedicated for job generating uses, such as business parks, mixed-use medical facilities, and commercial space. The construction of Kaiser Hospital and Dozier Libbey Medical High fulfilled a portion of this goal.
Of those 4,000 new housing units, the previous city council, (under former mayor Wade Harper), already approved about 1,200 units. That means theres only about 2,800 allowable units left in the SCFA, not 4,000.
The purpose of the Listening Forum is to get feedback from you about:
-Preserveing hilltops and hillsides
-Protecting our watersheds, creeks & wildlife
-Balancing job growth
-Equitably distributing the remaining 2,800 allowable housing units
