City Council Looks to Prairie Oaks & Willow Springs to Shoulder Almost 40% of Low-Income Re-Zoning

Prairie Oaks and Willow Springs residents are concerned over the possibility of over 51 acres of property being rezoned for low-income housing purposes. The areas specifically are almost 42 acres surrounding Folsom High School, in addition to 10 acres of land near Safeway on Iron Point, directly across the street from Intel, compiling a total of almost 40% of land looking to be re-zoned. Residents are specifically interested about the effects it will have on the high school, as well as the overall concern that the re-zoned land will not be distributed evenly throughout Folsom communities. The next planning commission hearing is October 16, 6:30, City Hall.
