Local events going on this week in Citrus Heights include two public hearings, LEGO Mania at the library, several community meetings, and Beer Week kicking off at Alley Katz. Here’s what’s on schedule:
TUESDAY, Feb. 23–
RT Forum. Sacramento Regional Transit will hold a forum at the Citrus Heights Community Center to gather community input on a proposal to raise transit fares. The proposed increase would change the price of passes, stickers and fares, with the cost of a basic single fare rising from $2.50 to $3.00, and the price of a discount single fare from $1.25 to $1.50. The forum will be held from noon to 7 p.m., at 6300 Fountain Square Dr. A survey can also be taken online. (Survey link)
WEDNESDAY, Feb. 24–
Planning Commission meeting. Two public hearings are set to take place Wednesday night, beginning at 7 p.m. The first hearing regards several amendments to the Auburn Boulevard Plan, which planning department staff believe will help fill vacancies and “introduce vibrant, active uses” on a portion of Auburn Boulevard. Amendments would relax certain use permit requirements and also offer more flexible options for businesses to meet parking requirements.
The second public hearing regards the In & Go Market at the corner of Greenback Lane and Fair Oaks Blvd., which has requested to expand its square footage and add distilled spirits to its list of beverages sold. (See agenda here)
THURSDAY, Feb. 25–
