According to the Elk Grove City Council's special meeting agenda released on Friday, developer Gil Moore is in real property negotiations for a vaguely described parcel.
According to the agenda, the property is described as "A portion of Lot 4, of Hewitt Subdivision No. 3, according to the official plat thereof, filed in the office of the Recorder of Sacramento County, California, on January 8, 1915, in Book 15 of Maps, Map No. 13."
The agenda does provide a general location of the parcel.
A search of the parcel description led to a 2006 city document that includes a reference to this parcel which appears to be part of the eminent domain proceedings for the Sheldon Road-Highway 99 interchange property.
Moore, who is developing a gas station and fast food outlet on Sheldon Road and East Stockton Blvd., has been thwarted in his efforts to place a billboard next to Highway 99 for his development. Current city regulations prohibit businesses not directly located next to the city's freeways from placing offsite billboards.
A request to provide a more specific location of the parcel has been sent to the city.
UPDATE. The following description of where the real property in question is located was provided by the city: "This is a lot along east Stockton close to the Sheldon interchange."
UPDATE II. The city provided this further explanation of the parcel in question. The property is a strip of land between East Stockton Blvd and Highway 99. The property has no APN or street address. The best I can describe the parcel is a remnant strip of land located within the vicinity of Sheldon Road/Highway 99 Interchange, on the west side of East Stockton Blvd. south of the drainage channel, Park and Ride lot, south of Sheldon Road.
