May 24, 2017 – The North Natomas Community and Aquatics Complex (NNCAC) is becoming a reality thanks to a recent sentiment of confidence from the Sacramento City Council after BCA Architects’ presentation of the project. The project was a big success, so much so that the other eight (8) Councilmembers (including Mayor Darrell Steinberg) commended Councilwoman Angelique Ashby (whom presides over District 1 where the Natomas area is located) for bringing it forward.
BCA Architects was hired by the City in 2014 to conduct a Feasibility Study for the project to examine the opportunities and risks associated with planning, financing, constructing and operating a new aquatic facility. The proposed project will be adjacent to the North Natomas Regional Park (NNRP) and is planned to boast a new 10,000+ square foot community center, competition swimming pool, warm-up pool, zero-entry activity pool and various support facilities.
The new complex will be one-of-a-kind for Sacramento, as it will feature the only 50-meter Olympic size pool in the city, and will be a draw for swim competitions and a variety of other regional events. NNCAC will enhance the cultural, recreation and educational amenities of the City’s residents and visitors.
