The presentation of an independent peer review of infrastructure planning for the water and wastewater needs of future development took place at the Rancho Murieta Community Services District board meeting Wednesday before a small audience of development critics and county officials. The peer review examines water, wastewater and drought planning studies the CSD prepared between 1990 and 2007. When the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors authorized the review in September 2007, it was described as a possible beginning for a master plan update that would determine how many new homes Rancho Murieta could accommodate.

CSD will hear water conservation, development plans

| Filed under

At its meeting Wednesday, the Community Services District board of directors will review a public outreach plan and schedule for water conservation pricing that would go into effect in January. The board will also receive a presentation from a land-use consultant for Parcel 1, the 18-acre apartment site located between the Rancho Murieta Association Building and Jackson Road.

The plan for 111 lots on Parcel 1 was first presented to the community in 2000. (See archived coverage here.)  At that time, it met with opposition from RMA, and the CSD determined the water allotment for the site was inadequate to serve the single-family lots. The site is zoned for multi-family housing. Read more » about CSD will hear water conservation, development plans
