Council to vote on new Kings downtown development project

The Sacramento City Council will consider a proposal to allow the Sacramento Kings to develop the “hole in the ground” at Eighth and K streets and adjacent parcels. The parties have reached an agreement in which the city would buy the parcels from its former redevelopment agency for $2.6 million, then immediately sell the land to the Kings for $5.9 million. The Kings reportedly are looking to put a five- to seven-story building at the key downtown corner, including retail on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the council chambers, 915 I St, Sacramento.

Sacramento supervisors vote on 7-11 liquor license at Howe and Hurley

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors approved a use permit for a 7-Eleven convenience store and gas station at the northwest corner of Howe Avenue and Hurley Way on Aug. 23. A separate item to allow the issuance of a liquor license by the State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control was continued due to community concerns and the Community Planning Advisory Council recommendation for denial. County planners are recommending that supervisors approve the liquor license at their meeting Tuesday. The item is scheduled to be heard at 3 p.m. in the supervisors’ chambers, 700 H St., Suite 1450, Sacramento.
