Located along Interstate-5, just north of Regional Sanitation District lands and within ½ mile of a future light-rail station, Delta Shores is one the largest vacant infill sites remaining in the City of Sacramento. The surrounding sites are completely developed with existing urban development. The extension of Cosumnes River Parkway will provide the major transportation links between Highway 99 and Interstate 5 in Southern Sacramento. Providing a major commercial and residential neighborhood at this crossroads is key to Delta Shores infill concept for Sacramento.

The Delta Shores Land Use Plan establishes the framework for a proposed new 800-acre community on the southern border of the City of Sacramento. It is envisioned as a collection of compact residential neighborhoods with approximately 4,600 new homes integrated with a regionally oriented Shopping Center/Town Center, Neighborhood/Village Center, schools, recreation facilities and parks, and multiple residential home types to address a wide variety of lifestyles and economic segments.

The Regional Town Center is strategically located at the new I-5/Cosumnes River Parkway interchange. Directly adjacent and connected to the Regional Center are clusters of higher density residential uses. The intent is to provide a
residential/retail/entertainment core designed around pedestrian walkways, plazas and greens creating a highly active, walkable pedestrian place in the heart of Delta Shores. One-half mile to the east along the Cosumnes River Parkway is proposed a new RT Transit stop and the “Neighborhood Transit Village.” The Regional Transit agency envisions this stop to function as a “neighborhood” light rail stop serving the existing surrounding residents and future residents of Delta Shores. The Delta Shores Plan is designed to provide direct links to this future light rail stop with pedestrian and bicycle links, as well as internal road network for local traffic and buses.

The Delta Shores Land Use Plan accommodates a mixture of low, medium and high-density housing units. The residential neighborhoods are organized in a series of small clusters with the intention of neighborhood parks as focal points. The neighborhoods are connected through an informal grid of streets and interconnected pedestrian paths and bike trails, all providing access to the Regional Town Center, Village Center, schools, parks and the future Transit Village. A pedestrian bridge is proposed to provide safe pedestrian access across Cosumnes River Boulevard.

The Delta Shores plan provides a network of local streets, arterials and collectors throughout the site organized as an informal “grid of streets” to help distribute traffic loads and improve connectivity throughout the site. The network of streets is envisioned to include a comprehensive system of pedestrian pathways and bikeway facilities (both on and off street). The roadway network provides connections to Cosumnes River Boulevard along 24th Street, and minor roadways to the Meadowview Neighborhood to the north.
