The city of Sacramento wants to move the historic depot in preparation for a new intermodal transit facility in the rail yards.

The mayor says the city will have $67 million from Measure A and Proposition 1A funds to spend on this first phase. But spending that money now leaves them short on funds for subsequent phases. All told, the mass-transit hub could top out at $300 million. Both Fargo and Chandler use the words “ideally,” “think” and “hope” when describing the hub’s future funding sources. Those are not words Meyer’s uses when describing how to lift a 55,000-square-foot building 5 feet off the ground.

City and County politicians need to begin a full court press on state representatives in Washington D.C. There's no better time than the present to start securing funds to do this. Especially with California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi now serving as Speaker of the House...

I'll take a look at imageshack, foxmtbr. Thanks. Before I saw your suggestion I moved the pic to Yahoo. I'll see if I can make the pic show up here from Yahoo. If not I give up for now. Anyhow there was a beautiful sunset in Rancho Cordova Wednesday night.

Trying again now....

First of all, AURA has to break ground, and then I think Nassi will start pushing Epic

As a result of the non stop construction activity at 500 CM (such as) the retaining wall and site prep for the foundation, I requested that the 500 Capitol Mall thread to be moved to Construction forum (from the proposal)...
(it can now be found there)...

I grew up in Rosemont too. I lived on Rosewood Drive, right around the corner from Seqouia Elementary!
I miss living there, even though I hear bad things about it now.

What bad things do you hear now? I think it's still a decent neighborhood.

I've heard that crime has gotten bad. Then again crime is everywhere. But when someone tried to break into their house, that was the last straw. They moved in '96. I left in 1991 when I joined the military.

I've visted friends who still live there and it seems nice in the older area between Kiefer, folsom, watt and mayhew. Outside of that I've heard it is bad.
I could be wrong.
I personnaly think it's a great place to raise a family. Schools, parks, and sports. I played for Rosemont Soccer when I was a young one!
But neighborhoods change, especially when Mather closed. I had a lot of friends who were AF brats. Lots of officers and senior enlisted in Rosemont before it closed.
