By Mike Hazlip—
A 2.3-acre vacant lot along Mariposa Avenue could become a new six-home subdivision, according to a proposal submitted to the city.

The proposal shows up to six lots at 7401 Mariposa Ave., located near Old Auburn Road. Five of the lots would face Mariposa Avenue, with the sixth lot accessible from the parking lot of Citrus Heights Fellowship church, a site plan shows.

Each of the five lots facing Mariposa Avenue would be around 11,000-square feet, with a much larger sixth lot of just under an acre in size located behind the other lots.

Economic Development and Community Engagement Director Meghan Huber said in an email response to The Sentinel that the applicant has not yet submitted any architectural plans for the homes, but she expects the final build will not exceed current standards. Those standards allow for structures with a height limit of 30 feet, Huber said. The total square footage of the homes is also yet to be determined, she said.

Plans are currently under review, with the most recent resubmittal received by the city on April 4, according to the city’s website. A variety of trees and landscaping plants are proposed along Mariposa Avenue, plans show. (See proposed parcel map split)

Comments on the proposal can be submitted to the city’s Planning Division via email or phone, with contact information posted on the city’s website.
