Annexation and an update on Kingsburg subdivisions

Annexation:  What is it?  Annexation is the process by which property is incorporated into the City of Kingsburg from unincorporated Fresno County.  The property must be located within Kingsburg’s Sphere of Influence and approved by the Fresno Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFco).

Currently there are 4 parcels in Kingsburg’s Sphere of Influence that are in various stages of the above annexation process.  All 4 plots of land are located north of Stroud; two on 10th Avenue and two on 18th Ave.  At this time, it is speculation as to what type of homes will be built and the time frame involved.  But just note that it looks like we have some new development in the works, hopefully soon.

Our current available inventory of Active Kingsburg listings is still low at 25. Only 14 homes Sold and closed escrow in the past 90 days. The 3rd quarter of the year is typically busier than it was this year.  To put it in perspective, in 2016 we sold 22 homes within the same time period.  One would think that with the inventory so low with not much availability, we would have sold more homes.  And now the market is starting its traditional slowdown as we head into fall and the holiday season.

Upcoming Events: 

Vintage Hollywood Ladies Night Out: Thursday, November 2nd from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm in downtown Kingsburg.

Julganfest: Friday, November 24th from 6:00 pm to 8:pm in downtown Kingsburg.

Santa Lucia Celebration: Saturday, December 2nd from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm in downtown Kingsburg.

On a personal/family note:  2017 marks the 30th Anniversary of a day our family calls our Annual Bake Day.  Every year the day after Thanksgiving, my son Damon and I get together and bake cookies, breads & goodies (along with just about anybody that wants to stop by and help stir or eat).  We flash freeze these immediately and 2 weeks prior to Christmas, we put together trays of these goodies and give them as gifts to family and friends. This day is so precious to my son and I and it has grown into quite a family tradition.  30 years is a long time!
