New Sylvan Project

The City of Citrus Heights is pleased to present the opportunity to purchase for development, an 11.3-acre transit-oriented site located at the busy intersection of Sylvan Road and Auburn Boulevard, locally known as “Sylvan Corners.”

The New Sylvan parcel is envisioned to be a professional and social hub for activity that incorporates cultural, recreational, residential, and commercial uses, ultimately being the cornerstone for redevelopment in the area. From our Complete Streets Project to revitalize the Auburn Blvd. corridor, to the Sunrise Tomorrow plan — the City of Citrus Heights continues to bring new growth to the solid roots of our community.

New Sylvan: Where Our Solid Roots Meet New Growth

A key factor in helping guide the development of the New Sylvan property is having a framework in place which helps guide decisions.  

To help keep the City’s long-term vision in focus, a series of goal statements have been developed to support the City’s strategic, long-term goals. These planning goals will provide the public and development community with the visioning framework outlined by the City when considering development opportunities. When envisioning New Sylvan, the Planning Goals outline concept goals, design goals, land use goals, and financial goals to evaluate future proposals.

By creating these Planning Goals, future developers are provided the City’s clear, yet flexible vision for the site. This unique opportunity for development remains pivotal for New Sylvan.  

Planning Goals

Concept Goals

  • Represent the City’s continued commitment to reinvest in the area surrounding New Sylvan.
  • Support uses compatible with surrounding land uses without detracting from the nearby Stock Ranch retail center.
  • Enhance New Sylvan as the geographical center of the City.

Design Goals

  • Provide well-designed parking and service areas to screen these areas from Auburn Boulevard and Sylvan Plaza.
  • Incorporate Sylvan Plaza into the project design.

Land Use Goals

  • Consider the property’s adjacency to the school and the cemetery.
  • Housing types may consist of for-sale and rental units, be a mixed-use concept, or designed for specific needs such as work-force housing, teacher housing or similar product type.

Financial Goals

  • The development shall be financially feasible and provide long-term fiscal benefits to the City.
