Kifumi, a Japanese American, has been an avid horticulturalist and owner of Exotic Plants Ltd. for more than 38 years in the Sacramento area.

Exotic Plants Ltd. is Sacramento's source for live plants, palms, and orchids in the region. They specialize in bringing the benefits of live plants through sales and service to homes and offices from Grass Valley to Vacaville. Everyone is encouraged to visit the Howe Avenue Store, in the Cost Plus Shopping Center at Howe & Alta Arden.

West Sacramento commercial DMV office to close for repairs

The West Sacramento Commercial Driver License (CDL) facility of the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), located at 2528 Evergreen Avenue will be closed for six and one-half working days starting at noon on Thursday, March 3.

The construction project includes a number of much-needed repairs and renovations, including work on the building’s parking lot, flooring, interior painting and other modifications to bring the office into code compliance. 

The easiest way to accommodate this project is to close the office completely for the duration of the repairs. The West Sacramento CDL office is scheduled to reopen for business on Monday, March 14 at 7:30 a.m.

DMV officials say the 14-year old office has not had any substantial renovations since it opened in 1997. The West Sacramento CDL Office is one of several offices slated for maintenance or repair projects during 2011.
