About the Project

Sacramento Regional Transit and its partners having been working with the community on planning what future development of the Florin light rail station excess parking lot and property could look like. We have received interest from a number of developers with concepts ranging from market rate housing to partnerships between mixed-income housing and various service providers and businesses. Please see the following concepts:

MH Mohanna Development – Letter of Interest – SacRT Florin
LINC Housing – Letter of Interest No 2019013 – Florin Light Rail Station
Jamboree – Florin Road RFI Response
Habtiat for Humanity – LOI SacRT Florin Station
Mutual Housing California RT LOI FINAL
FTA joint-development-brochure

Last fall a national panel of experts visiting Sacramento to study the Florin and Meadowview areas and provided the following report on the potential for those two light rail station areas:

Because we are a public agency and originally purchased the Florin station property with federal funding there are certain constraints on how we can develop the property:

  • We must use a competitive process (“Request for Proposals”) to consider proposals
  • We must accommodate transit use (light rail access, bus facilities, and parking based off current demand) and promote transit ridership
  • We must ensure the safety and maintenance of our facilities

SacRT is interested in working with the community in creating a livable, transit-oriented neighborhood that will benefit not only transit users, but also the community around us.  Please join us for a discussion on July 18 about how we can work together on this effort. A survey will be posted soon to ask how you would like to participate in this process.
