Construction in Natomas could begin in June


Natomas has waited a long seven years to be able to continue and start construction projects, and now it is one step closer to making that happen.

In December 2008, the federal government said put a building moratorium in Natomas because the levee system needed upgrades as part of revised requirements by FEMA following Hurricane Katrina.

Then, Thursday afternoon Mayor Pro Tem Angelique Ashby held a press conference at Sacramento City Hall where she had a big announcement.

The city is expecting a letter from FEMA later this month that will lift the moratorium in Natomas and allow construction to resume in the area. Once that letter is received, building permit applications will be accepted. And 90 days after that, the city can start issuing building permits to anyone interested in building again.

As it stands, that means construction could begin in June.

SACRAMENTO - Southwest Airlines, the busiest carrier at Sacramento International Airport, is allowing passengers on selected flights to board and exit the aircraft through the rear door in an effort to reduce turnaround times.

The month-long experiment in dual boarding at gates 12, 14 and 15 began last week and the early results are encouraging, according to Southwest's manager of ramp and ground operations at the airport.

"We've had up to 17-minute gains on certain aircraft," Pedro Teixeira said. "So this provides a benefit for everyone."
