Community invited to review the draft Downtown Specific Plan

Provide input on the plan to bring housing to Downtown Sacramento on Monday, Oct. 9

Downtown Specific Plan Draft

October 2, 2017

The City of Sacramento is hosting an open house to share the draft Downtown Specific Plan, which will pave the way for at least 10,000 places to live in the next 10 years.

“Sacramento is one of the fastest-growing cities in the state, and there is a serious need for housing to accommodate our growing population,” said Jim McDonald, Principal Planner, Community Development Department.  “To address this need, the City has developed a draft Downtown Specific Plan through a year-long process of technical analysis and community input.”

“The open house provides an opportunity for the community to see how their input has helped shape the plan,” said Greg Sandlund, Senior Planner, Community Development Department.

Key components of the draft plan include new strategies for more affordable transit-supportive housing, expansion of bicycle facilities, a streamlined review process for housing and mixed-use projects, recommended public art locations and types, and updated urban design guidelines for Downtown Sacramento.

Join the community conversation and share your thoughts at the community open house.
