On Tuesday July 27th, the Sacramento City Council approved a purchase of the 19,000 square foot Sacramento News & Review building, slated to become the new and vastly improved North Sacramento Hagginwood Library at 1124 Del Paso Boulevard. The seller was the vonKaenel-Redmond Revocable Trust 2007.
I am the vonKaenel of the trust and my wife Deborah Redmond, who has been my far more capable partner for 44 years, is the Redmond.
This project has been a community-wide effort in which many people played a part. Sacramento City Council member Sean Loloee who helped take this proposal to the finish line; City Council member Angelique Ashby, who worked tirelessly for years on this project; Mayor Darrell Steinberg who has led community development efforts throughout the city; the City Staff who worked behind the scenes to plan and evaluate multiple options for this project; Del Paso Boulevard Partnership Executive Director Daniel Savala and Friends of Sacramento Public Library long-time supporter Pat Sayer-Handley who built up community support; our Realtor Mike Riley; and of course many others.
