Sacramento is one of five cities nationwide to win a competitive grant from the American Institute of Architects for technical assistance to help revitalize the city’s Del Paso Heights neighborhood.

On June 3, AIA’s Sustainable Design Assessment Team (SDAT) program will bring seven national experts to the city for three days to develop recommendations for improving one of Sacramento’s oldest and most diverse neighborhoods. The SDAT will work with the community over the course of three days to shape the community’s strategy for addressing revitalization, the sense of community, jobs, and economic issues.

Your Input and Participation are Critical
Community involvement is critical to the SDAT process, and will be sought via round table discussions and a community town hall meeting. The discussion topics are generally reflected in the SDAT expertise:

1. Economic Development
2. Neighborhood Urban Design and Community Connections
3. Neighborhood and Community Revitalization

Your participation in these events will be essential to ensuring that the SDAT members gain knowledge and insight into Del Paso Heights’ central issues and opportunities, as well as its relationship to the rest of Sacramento. With your help, we can begin establishing a community vision for Del Paso Heights future and make decisions that support the shared vision. The City of Sacramento is bringing together residents, property owners, urban designers, planners, businesses, community leaders, architects, and YOU!
