The Grandpark Specific Plan (formerly North Natomas Precinct and part of the Natomas Vision Plan) has had a detailed and lengthy history. In September 2014, the Grandpark Landowners' Group submitted an application that was later modified to include urbanization for the area north of Elkhorn Boulevard and east of Highway 99. The Master Plan process continues the effort begun many years ago and includes opportunities for public comment and input.
The area includes numerous important assets and unique opportunities to the County and the Region. The area contains the intersection of two major north/south and east/west interstates; will be served by the future Downtown/Natomas/Airport Light Rail line; is within four to seven miles of downtown Sacramento; and is identified as a future growth area in the regional “Blueprint” Plan. The Sacramento International Airport represents a significant investment of both public and private funds and is a major regional economic asset. Immediately to the east of the airport is the Metro Airpark business park that in the future will be available for construction of major employment and business activity. In addition, major investments of local, state and federal funds are underway to complete massive levee improvements in order to protect existing homes and residents, the airport, the interstate freeways and other significant investments within the larger Natomas Basin. Finally, solutions to addressing the preservation of habitats and species, notably the Swainson’s Hawk and Giant Garter Snake, are being studied and will be an important component of the planning process.
Public Input Opportunities

Applicant's Application Narrative
The Landowners’ Group, consisting of Brookfield Natomas, LLC, Ose Properties, Inc., and Demeter Development, LP, has been actively engaged in developing a conservation strategy given the existence of biological species in the area (Swainson’s Hawk and Giant Garter Snake). This will lead to either a new or amended Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that takes into account the existing HCP that the City of Sacramento and Sutter County entered into with the regulatory agencies.
Grandpark and Upper West Side projects are within the boundaries of the Natomas Joint Vision Area.
