ARB Research Seminar on SB 375
Mar 29 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Join ARB or tune in for an upcoming Research Seminar.

Karen Chapple, Ph.D. and
Miriam Zuk, Ph.D.
University of California, Berkeley

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 1:30 p.m., PDT (WEBCAST)
Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building
1001 I Street, Sacramento, California

In 2008 California passed Senate Bill 375 requiring metropolitan
planning organizations (MPO) to develop Sustainable Communities
Strategies (SCS) as part of their regional transportation
planning process. While the implementation of these strategies
has the potential for environmental and economic benefits, rising
housing costs and changing neighborhood conditions may compel
low-income residents and households to move out of
transit-oriented neighborhoods. This out-migration is called
“displacement.” The study examined the relationship between
fixed-rail transit neighborhoods and displacement in Los Angeles
and the San Francisco Bay Area. For more go to the announcement

Stakeholder Meeting for the Downtown Specific Plan

Stakeholder Meeting for the Downtown Specific Plan

Wednesday, March 29, 2017
5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Hacker Lab, 1715 I St, Sacramento, CA 95811

In an on-going effort to encourage and facilitate urban infill housing in the Central City area, for the next ten years and beyond, the City of Sacramento is developing the Downtown Specific Plan.

The plan will focus primarily on:

* Identifying and evaluating a number of urban infill sites within the project area
* Removing barriers to housing development by streamlining the development and environmental review process
* Incentivizing Transit-Oriented Development throughout the Central City, including along the streetcar corridor
* Maintaining and improving the quality of life for Central City residents, and furthering neighborhood livability by including additional amenities and housing opportunities

As a key stakeholder representative, we are interested in partnering with you on this effort. The project team is hosting a focus group meeting to discuss community amenities,
historic preservation, arts and culture, and public health as they relate to increasing Downtown’s housing supply. Learn how mobility will play an important part in developing the plan,
and explore what you and your neighbors had to say on the community survey.

Please RSVP by March 24th by responding to Salvador Ramirez at sramirez [at] aimconsultingco [dot] com or calling 916-442-1168. If you have any questions regarding this meeting, please contact Gladys Cornell at gcornell [at] aimconsultingco [dot] com or at 916-442-1168.

Help Native Wildlife and be a Citizen Scientist
Apr 2 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Help Native Wildlife and be a Citizen Scientist

Is it more of a ribbit or a croak? Learn to speak frog and find out! Sign up to be a volunteer for the local chapter of FrogWatch USA with a free training session at the Zoo on April 2nd from 1 to 4 pm. You will learn the calls of our native frogs and how to record their numbers in local areas. After the initial training, the time required is only 10-15 minutes, once per week! Go to https://www.saczoo.org/ to register for the training.

Why frogs? Frogs and other amphibians play an important role in the health of ecosystems, but more than a third of the world’s amphibian species are currently facing the largest mass extinction event since the dinosaurs. Even in the United States, previously abundant amphibian populations have experienced dramatic declines. It is essential that scientists understand the scope, geographic scale, and cause of these declines.

“The data collected by FrogWatch USA volunteers can be used to help understand how amphibian populations are changing over time and can inform conservation and management efforts,” said Shelly Grow, the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s Director of Conservation Programs. “Furthermore, learning to recognize and identify the frogs and toads calling at night is rewarding in itself and lets you appreciate your community and local wetlands in a whole new way.”
Sacramento Valley FrogWatch is one of more than 100 chapters throughout the United States, and the information gathered by volunteers has given scientists invaluable information about frog population numbers and species location. Become a Citizen Scientist and volunteer today!
