Natomas building moratorium could be history this year


Natomas could finally see building resume in a matter of months-- the federal government is preparing a letter that would lift a nearly 7-year building moratorium in the area.

Since then, commercial and residential developments have been placed on hold, leaving parcels of land empty. The bareness has been an eyesore for many residents.

"It's a bit depressing," John Cranshaw said.

He has lived in a Natomas neighborhood for almost four years and longs for the day construction will start up again.

"It's desolate," Cranshaw said. "When we moved out here, I couldn't understand why they put all this infrastructure and didn't build any houses."

In 2008, the federal government placed a building moratorium because the area did not meet flood protection requirements.

But city officials expect that to change this year.
