25-acre Ramona Property, owned by Sacramento State, is within an urbanized and industrial portion of the City of Sacramento zoned as Manufacturing/Research and Development/Solid Waste Restricted
Document Description
The project proposes development of the project site in two phases with academic, research, and office space that support the academic programming of Sacramento State. Phase I of the project would include construction and operation of the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD)-affiliated nonprofit California Mobility Center (CMC) testing and manufacturing facility (ramp-up facility) and a new office building/crime laboratory for the California Department of Justice (CADOJ). The proposed CMC would consist of a research facility for mobility technologies such as electric vehicles, autonomous transportation, battery storage, and transit; a showcase building; and an approximately three-acre test track for CMC autonomous vehicles and surface parking, occupying approximately 11 acres within the northern half of the site. Under Phase I, the CADOJ facility would occupy approximately nine acres in the southern half of the site for a building and secure parking. Both the CMC and CADOJ facilities would provide opportunities for integration with Sacramento State instruction: classes, hands-on learning, internships, etc. The remaining five acres of the project site would accommodate a central plaza/green space, landscaping and stormwater detention areas, bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and internal access roads. Phase II of the project would replace Phase I surface parking in the eastern portion of the project site with two mixed-use buildings. As currently envisioned, the Phase II buildings would provide academic, administrative, and/or research office space with ground-level retail and parking, as well as additional space for CMC expansion, adjacent to the testing and manufacturing facility.
