Plans for a Transit Village

KFSN The city is working on building a transit village located at the site of the former Elks Lodge at Willow and Kings Canyon.

The village would provide apartments, a park, and instant access to the city's bus system, and eventually, light rail.

The goal would be to help senior citizens who need affordable housing, and an easy way to get around town. Michael Sigala, Housing & Community Development: "This is a great project for the community it should be a showcase project for the entire San Joaquin Valley."

The project would cover five acres and feature about 130 apartments.

The city hopes to break ground next year, and complete the transit village within three years.
