Opportunity is knocking in this Natomas neighborhood. Now that the building moratorium has been lifted, nearly a dozen new homes are going up on Candela Circle.
It's been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina devastated the southeast coast and left thousands of people homeless. The country's levees came under intense federal scrutiny after ones in the New Orleans area failed, including the levee system in the Sacramento region.
A building moratorium was put into place in the Natomas area seven years ago because the levee system needed upgrades in order to federal regulations. Since then, they have been updated and in March FEMA lifted the moratorium.
Next door to Megan Frost’s home, construction on new houses is up and running.
