The hearing of most significance is May 8. It will be at that meeting Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen and her city council approve the construction and finance plan for the relocation of the Sacramento Zoo.

As outlined in one Zoom meeting conducted by the city and the Sacramento Zoological Society, the operator of the Sacramento Zoo, the first phase of the multiphase project will cost $300 million. Although the city would not disclose the cost of the entire project, given that the zoo will have three more phases, the total project cost is expected to exceed $1 billion.

Even with the mayor's approval, the project has hurdles before construction starts. Most notable is Sacramento Zoological's obligation to raise $50 million incrementally.

Additionally, Mayor Singh-Allen has committed to issuing $114 million in revenue bonds based on current interest rates. City finance director Matt Paulin stated during the Zoom meeting that a rise in rates could delay or scuttle the project.
