About Us

South Land Park is a neighborhood of over 13,000 residents in the southwest area of Sacramento. SLPNA exists to protect, promote, and enhance our neighborhood.

Vision

  • To effectively represent the interests of the neighborhood by actively engaging with the City Council, school district, County Board of Supervisors, and other influential bodies
  • To help protect the neighborhood's residents and property and to help maintain and improve the value of the neighborhood
  • To create a well-connected and strong community.

Goals to Accomplish the Vision


  • Constantly communicate current events and issues with the members of the association through email, newsletter, website, and online communities

  • Contact new residents to the community and welcome them to SLPNA. Ask them for their interests and get them plugged in

Annual General Meetings


The General Meeting is held each year at the end of March, 7:00 to 9:00 PM, at Alice Birney or Pony Express Schools.

This meeting usually includes our local elected officials as well as local law enforcement and acts as a forum to exchange information throughout the neighborhood.

Examples of Past Activity


Permanent association was founded in 1990 by members of an ad hoc group that was formed when there was neighborhood opposition to a proposal to build approximately 500 apartments on what is now the East Land Park Village site of 90 homes. Over the years, we:

  • Presented the City with the results of a neighborhood survey showing major opposition to a fast food restaurant on the northwest corner of South Land Park Drive and Florin Road, and more recently worked with the city in attempting to ensure a neighborhood- and traffic-friendly business development at the same site
  • Presented the City and County with the results of a neighborhood survey regarding the possible closure of Executive Airport (as part of the Mather Reuse Study in the 1990s), and more recently stayed abreast of a proposal by the City to close Executive and develop the land
  • Were founding members of the Freeport Boulevard Improvement Committee (comprised of members from neighborhood associations and businesses along the boulevard and the City and County) which created a boulevard Master Plan adopted by the City Council, and was a driving force behind median landscape improvements along the boulevard
  • Represented the neighborhood on selection of contractors for renovation of Freeport Square into the Sacramento Public Safety Administration Center and the Executive Airport parking lot, and provided input as the South Hills Center was renovated
  • Facilitated public meetings which led to quieting of problems from a nightclub in the South Hills Shopping Center
  • Worked with CalTrans to ensure completion of a project to mitigate Interstate 5 noise problems north of Florin Road
  • Worked with City Councilman Jimmie Yee and City Public Works on a plan to irrigate and plant street-side areas above drainage canals on 13th Street and on South Land Park Ddrive at 14th Street
  • Facilitated meetings and provided the City with neighborhood concerns and desired amenities for a new park at the south end of Park Village Street - Jensen Park
  • Worked with the City to limit the height and breadth of a proposed cell tower at 35th Avenue and South Land Park Drive
  • Successfully opposed the State Parks plan to run tourist trains in South Land Park.
  • Assisted the City in its successful grant application for the Del Rio Trail.
