Community meeting in Oak Park Thursday to addresses new supermarket
Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church’s Pastor Kevin Brown will lead a community discussion about the pending arrival of Safeway supermarket and the jobs it will bring to Crocker Park, formerly called Curtis Park Village.
The meeting will be held at the Oak Park Community Center at 6:00 p.m., on Thursday, Oct. 22. With Safeway involvement, more than 225 jobs will be available.
The jobs, many starting at $22 per hour, will be under a union, with pensions and benefits. Residents from Oak Park will get hiring preferences.
Crocker Park will consist of 180,000 square feet of retail, 286 traditional single-family housing units, 132 market rate multi family units and 92 senior affordable housing multi family units.
The residential housing community starts at the intersection of Sutterville Road and Crocker Drive, wedged between two of Sacramento’s premier 80 year-old legacy neighborhoods, Land Park and Curtis Park. It’s linked to Sacramento City College.
Safeway is not a discount grocer, but as an anchor tenant, will bring in other desired shops and high-quality restaurants. Safeway is also in talks with the city to install up to eight fuel pumps for its customer and the surrounding area.
The Oak Park Community Center is located at 3425 Martin Luther King Jr., Boulevard. For more information, call (916) 501.8412.
