Fulton Avenue Special Planning Area

​Project Description:

The intent of the Fulton Avenue Special Planning Area (SPA) is to spur private sector investment and to accelerate the repositioning and competitiveness of the Fulton Avenue corridor by providing additional land uses by right and establishing design standards to ensure aesthetically pleasing, quality projects.  Accelerated reinvestment in the area is also expected to benefit surrounding commercial corridors, neighborhoods, and the Arden Arcade community as well.  The Fulton Avenue Special Planning Area expresses the community’s long term vision and principles at a district level.  Future projects within the Plan area would be required to contribute to fulfilling the goals of the Plan and the evolution of the community consistent with economic development and image objectives of the Plan area and the surrounding community

Project Location/Boundary:

The Fulton SPA is centrally located in the northern portion of Sacramento County.  The project site consists of approximately 200 acres of commercial and retail parcels with some residential uses.  The 200-acre project site is generally located along Fulton Avenue between Arden Way and Edison Avenue, in the unincorporated community of Arden Arcade.
