The City of Folsom plans to move its corporation yard and is seeking community input on the redevelopment of the 16.3 acre site located on the west end of Leidesdorff Street near the American River Parkway, Lake Natoma and Historic District.
The City’s corporation yard houses the City’s bus fleet, construction equipment and police and fire vehicles, and serves as a maintenance center for all City-owned vehicles. The City of Folsom intends to relocate the corporation yard south of Highway 50 to reduce industrial traffic in the Historic District and to serve all areas of the City more effectively.
The City is seeking citywide feedback to capture community visions and values for the uniquely located property on Leidesdorff Street in Historic Folsom. Community members are encouraged to share opinions on three site design examples, as well as offer unique ideas for the site. Feedback can be submitted on the City’s MindMixer forum at http://townhall.folsom2035.com.
The three example land use scenarios emerged during a stakeholder visioning process with the city’s design consultant Jeffrey Demure & Associates and a focus group comprised of local residents, local business owners, historic preservationists, advocates, student leaders and community leaders. The examples are a starting point to stimulate discussion and comment; the City is also interested in receiving other ideas.
Community feedback will be collected through August 31 and will be shared with the Folsom City Council at the September 13 City Council Meeting.
