Faculty and staff housing village on track

The University’s faculty and staff housing village is moving closer to completion. A finalized conceptual site plan is available at www.enterprises.csus.edu/village/character.html. A feasibility and market study are in progress and due to be finished soon.

Rendering of faculty and staff housing to be complete soon.The village, currently in development by University Enterprises, will be located on Ramona Avenue on the 25-acre former site of the California Youth Authority. More than 400 homes, a community center, childcare facility, parks and neighborhood businesses will replace the CYA facility.

The upcoming feasibility and marketing study will resolve the quantity and size of homes to be built and establish targets for home costs based on current Sacramento State salary levels and household incomes. The report will also analyze how rapidly the homes can be sold based on demand so that construction phasing can be appropriate.

Later this spring, University Enterprises will seek a development firm with which to enter into a public/private partnership to create the village.
