A community open house is ahead for those looking to learn more, or give feedback on the City of Folsom’s River District Plan on Thursday, June 6 at the Folsom Community Center. City staff and their consulting team will share an analysis and initial concepts for the future district.

The city’s General Plan calls for the preparation of a River District Master Plan to activate Folsom’s expansive waterfront for improved access, recreation, and economic development. This 6-mile district is located on the American River at Lake Natoma and is bound by Folsom-Auburn Road, Greenback Lane, and Folsom Boulevard.


Since August 2023, a citizens advisory committee appointed by the Folsom City Council has been meeting regularly to identify numerous opportunities to fulfill the General Plan objectives and protect essential environmental and cultural resources. The city’s top priorities of the district plan include the process of integrating new and old areas of the city while increasing access to the river and lake, increasing recreation and economic opportunities and enhancing Folsom’s heritage. This plan does not include development along the waterfronts of the district, which are owned by California State Parks and the Federal Bureau of Reclamation who both oversee the waterfronts.

The open house will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Folsom Community Center, 52 Natoma Street. Visit www.folsom.ca.us/RiverDistrict for more information or email with questions.
