Present Land Use
The existing zoning of the site is mixture of Central Business District Toxic Railyards Special Planning District (C-3 T SPD) and Heavy Industrial Toxic Railyards Special Planning District (M-2 T SPD) zones. The site presently consists of existing rail operations that include freight and passenger rail, a depot site, the historic central shops and vacant land.

Document Description
The proposed project is the amendment of the Richards Boulevard Redevelopment Plan and the adoption of a Railyards Redevelopment Plan. The Railyards portion of the existing Project Area will be established as a separate redevelopment project area (Railyards Project Area). To accomplish this, the existing Redevelopment Plan for the Richards Boulevard Redevelopment Project would need to be amended to delete the Railyards Area from within that project area's boundaries (Amended Project Area) and a new Redevelopment Plan for the Railyards Redevelopment Project would need to be adopted. In addition, the Amendment will change the name of the Richards Boulevard Redevelopment Project Area (Richards Project Area) to the River District Redevelopment Project Area. The existing Richards Project Area is located within the boundaries of the City of Sacramento, California. The Amended Richards (River District) Project Area would consists of approximately 738 acres located south of the American River, east of the Sacramento River, and just north of the Central City. The Railyards Project Area would encompass approximately 300 acres, generally bounded by the Sacramento River on the west, North B Street on the north and I street on the south. The eastern boundary varies between 7th Street and 12th Street. The principal purposes to be accomplished by establishing the Railyards Project Area as a separate and district redevelopment project are (1) to enable the Railyards Project Area to be developed and to provide support and assistance to that development as feasible, necessary and appropriate; and (2) to protect the remainder of the Richards Project Area from the costs and other development constraints particularly affecting the Railyards Area.
