A satellite campus for California State University, Sacramento may be coming to Placer County.
A proposed 300-acre plot of land has been identified for a Sacramento State satellite campus that would support up to 25,000 students. The campus is part of a larger development project known as the Sunset Area and Placer Ranch Specific Plan. The development would be located west of Highway 65 between Lincoln (to the north), Rocklin (to the east) and Roseville (to the south).
The satellite campus plan calls for a Sierra College transfer center on the site for 5,000 students. Students would start studying at Sierra College and finish their four-year degree at the campus.
The satellite campus is one piece of the Sunset Area and Placer Ranch Specific Plan that also calls for 30 million square feet of non-residential uses; up to 2,500 homes; and 9 million square feet of commercial, employment and university-related, non-residential use.
The Placer County Planning Commission will host a public hearing and workshop on the plans on Feb. 22, at the Placer County Community Development Resources Agency in Auburn.
The public hearing and workshop will include an overview of the plans and provide an opportunity for the public to offer input to help refine the plans before an environmental impact report is completed.
