CSD will hear water conservation, development plans

| Filed under

At its meeting Wednesday, the Community Services District board of directors will review a public outreach plan and schedule for water conservation pricing that would go into effect in January. The board will also receive a presentation from a land-use consultant for Parcel 1, the 18-acre apartment site located between the Rancho Murieta Association Building and Jackson Road.

The plan for 111 lots on Parcel 1 was first presented to the community in 2000.

The site is zoned for multi-family housing. Read more » about CSD will hear water conservation, development plans
