Natomas building ban lifted


SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Mayor Kevin Johnson received FEMA's finals designation letter letting the city move forward with construction in Natomas Tuesday evening.

Those who live and love the area like Leo Pantoja with KB Home said while the wait was hard, they're just concentrating on what's next.

"We've been on hold for quite a few years," he said. "It's been a long time coming."

In 2008, the building moratorium in Natomas went into effect after the federal government found the area did not meet enhanced flood protection requirements.

Pantoja said he's just grateful all that is behind the area.

"It's a very convenient location, good neighborhoods, amenities, schools, I think it's going to be great," he said.

And so do city leaders who were busy taking applications like the one from KB homes all day. They're calling it a relief.

Feds lift Natomas building moratorium


For years, the Natomas neighborhood has not been a pretty sight for Denise Chapel. It has been an eyesore with unfinished structures. Chapel purchased her Natomas home just a few months before the building moratorium.

"Since we came in about seven years ago, the house has gone down in value about one-third of what we purchased," Chapel explained.

After years of putting construction on hold, Natomas will soon start seeing signs of building growth. On Tuesday, the City of Sacramento received a letter from FEMA giving them the okay to move forward with building plans.

The building moratorium in Natomas went into effect in 2008 after the federal government found that the area did not meet enhanced flood protection requirements. The feds looked at all U.S. cities more carefully following Hurricane Katrina.

But, walls will go back up with levee improvements now halfway done.
