West Sacramento Community Center
Significant levels of growth are projected to occur in the urban core of Sacramento and West Sacramento during the next 20 years. The two cities have approved land use entitlements for major urban in ll projects in accordance with the Sacramento Blueprint Project. These projects include the Railyards in Sacramento and the Bridge District and Washington Area in West Sacramento. This new development would generate greater travel demand on local transit services and roadways. Given that this urban core is slated for higher density development, the transportation system needs to be augmented to provide transit service for shorter, local trips within the core across the Sacramento River. Focusing transit circulation within the urban core would be conducive to achieving planned urban development and redevelopment goals, fostering economic development, and reducing tra c congestion and the need for additional parking facilities. The City of Sacramento, City of West Sacramento, Sacramento RT, YCTD, and SACOG are planning for the development of the “Downtown/Riverfront Streetcar Project” to provide this timely and important addition to our transit network.
Invited Panelists include: Bay Miry, D&S Development; Councilmember Steve Hansen, City of Sacramento; Mayor Christopher Cabaldon, City of West Sacramento and Congresswoman Doris Matsui.
Moderator: Fedolia “Sparky” Harris, City of Sacramento and ULI Sacramento TOD Advisory Council
