WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The West Sacramento City Council approved the transfer of a riverfront property to secure the location of the Indian Heritage Center, a project over a decade in the making.
The West Sacramento Redevelopment Agency (RDA) owned the 43-acre property, known as the East Riverfront Property, since 1997. In May 2007, the California Indian Heritage Center Task Force selected the property to be a location for state park and museum.READ MORE: 'I'm In Shock': Colusa Farmer Fears Former Schoolmate Died In Helicopter Crash
