On August 23, 2023, ECOS submitted a letter regarding the City of Sacramento Draft General Plan Update.
Our main comments concerning the GPU are as follows:
- The General Plan should include funding plans and a method of prioritizing projects based on funding availability.
- New street standards for transit, tree canopy, and walkability should be connected to the Street Classification System to ensure uniform Citywide implementation.
- The Plan should remove the Special Study Area in Natomas Basin and restore the protections to Biological Resources present in the 2015 GPU.

We look forward to engaging with the City as the General Plan Update advances, in order to help make this plan as best as it can be for the present and future residents of the City of Sacramento.
