OLD FOOTHILL FARMS CDBG BLIGHT STUDY


The City requesteIn 2008, RSG was retained by the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency to prepare a slum/blight study of an unincorporated area located about 15 miles northeast of downtown Sacramento.  The Old Foothill Farms study area comprised approximately 240 acres of retail commercial, multifamily, single family and other uses along several major arterials including Auburn Boulevard, Madison Avenue, and Garfield Avenue.  Our work entailed extensive field documentation of conditions visible from the public right of way, analysis of real estate conditions, study of socioeconomic conditions, and crime rate research.  We ultimately concluded in a report delivered to SHRA that the area met the blight conditions under CDBG and redevelopment.
