New Sylvan Update: Council to Consider Purchase Agreement

On January 14, the Citrus Heights City Council is scheduled to consider an offer to purchase the City-owned land on the corner of Sylvan Rd. and Auburn Blvd., locally known as “Sylvan Corners.” This meeting will serve as City Council’s opportunity to review and consider approval of a purchase agreement with a buyer.


It is important to note that this meeting will only be to consider the purchase agreement, not any specific development project. While the submitted offer does include potential development concepts, project specifics will be reviewed once a development application is received (following an approved purchase agreement).  


As background, the City purchased this 11.3-acre parcel from San Juan Unified School District in 2019, in order to play an active role in its future. Deemed “New Sylvan,” this project is envisioned to be a major investment and development opportunity including residential and/or office uses to complement nearby projects in the area. Prior to placing the property for sale, the City Council established planning goals for the property and viewed several general development concepts — all of which were contained in the City’s offering memorandum for developers.

Pending Council’s consideration to approve the purchase agreement, City staff will continue to engage our community around the developer’s plans. Once a development application is received, community members will be encouraged to provide input and attend public hearings on the project.
