Sacramentans this month have an opportunity to help shape the future of their local communities.
Starting next week, residents can participate in a series of online virtual workshops to learn about key strategies for topics including land use, mobility, housing and parks access. The virtual workshops begin Oct. 6 and run through Oct. 20.
As part of the City’s Sacramento 2040 General Plan Update & Climate Action Plan, these workshops allow residents of the local communities to review and comment on the key strategies that staff are proposing for the 10 community plans about topics of land use, mobility and parks.
“One of the main goals in preparing the 2040 General Plan is to provide every opportunity possible to hear from various community members,” said Remi Mendoza, senior planner and project manager for the City of Sacramento’s Community Development Department. “Our team is working diligently to adapt to the current circumstances to ensure everyone has a chance to be part of this process and plan.”
Residents are also encouraged to tune into an optional orientation at 5:30 p.m. Oct.6 and 7 to get a preview of the platform and learn best practices to provide input for these self-guided workshops. Register for the Zoom orientation sessions at the links below.
