CCNA History

The Carmichael Creek Neighborhood Association (CCNA) was formed in 1986 by a group of concerned neighbors to provide a community voice in development issues affecting Carmichael, California. Our primary concern was and is the preservation of open space and the rural residential character of this area. With the 1975 Carmichael Community Plan as our guide and after extensive house to house surveys , we persuaded the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors to establish the Carmichael Creek Neighborhood Preservation Area Ordiance (NPA) in 1988. The NPA includes about 1000 residences and restricts development not consistent with the existing zoning designations.
