Retail center plans to be discussed

Rancho Cordova’s Planning Department hosts an informal neighborhood meeting about a planned retail center on an undeveloped 14-acre site at 5:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall, 2729 Prospect Drive. According to the city, the project at the southeast corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Douglas Road was originally submitted in July 2015, but has since been redesigned to attract new tenants. The plans still include two phases of construction. Phase 1 includes five new retail pads and a new service station with car wash and convenience store. Phase 2 would include one new commercial pad totaling 80,000 square feet, to be designed and constructed at a later time. Call 916-851-8754 for more information.
