Mayor and City to host new interactive workshops dedicated to helping communities prosper 

The City of Sacramento will host interactive community workshops to engage residents in a community-focused economic development strategy. The initiative, Project Prosper, will address Mayor and Council priorities for inclusive growth to cultivate equitable economic development in each community.

“As I said in my State of the City address, we are all better off when we are ALL better off, and that starts with our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg. “Project Prosper will help us understand the needs and challenges of our neighborhoods so we can better develop strategies that will strengthen our local economy and create a community that provides real opportunities for everyone in Sacramento to prosper.”

In an effort to engage all Sacramento residents, three workshops will be held at various locations in the City, with additional opportunities to engage online:

  • Wednesday, February 21 from 6 - 8 p.m.
    Fruitridge Community Collaborative
    4625 44th St.
      
  • Thursday, February 22 from 6 – 8 p.m.
    Bartley Cavanaugh Golf Course
    8301 Freeport Blvd.

  • Saturday, March 3 from 10 a.m. to Noon
    KVIE Community Room
    2030 W. El Camino Ave.

The facilitated workshops will engage community members through a series of activities that include group exercises, voting opportunities, and an overview on the importance of diverse economic prosperity.

The information gained from these workshops will help the City take action on a broad range of topics that will help improve economic prosperity in each community, and empower residents to foster healthier and more vibrant neighborhoods.

In conjunction with Project Prosper, the City is working with various economic development leaders to facilitate a regional discussion on creating actionable goals with commitment to inclusive growth and building more community wealth for Sacramento and residents.
