Good news!

The Sacramento City Council took a step Tuesday toward becoming one of the first cities in the country to eliminate traditional single-family zoning.

The change, for which the council unanimously signaled support, would allow houses across the city to contain up to four dwelling units. City officials said the proposal would help the city alleviate its housing crisis, as well as achieve equity goals, by making neighborhoods with high-performing schools, pristine parks and other amenities accessible for families who cannot afford the rising price tags to buy homes there.

Sac/Davis Bicycle Film Festival

Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) and BikeDavis are teaming up to host the Sac/Davis Bicycle Film Festival, from Feb 5 – 14. This will be a ‘virtual’ festival where people can stream a 1-hour, 45-min selection of short films from the comfort of their homes.

This year is the 20th edition of the Bicycle Film Festival. The program features short films from around the world that celebrate the bicycle culture in all its forms, and get people excited to ride their bikes, whether for exercise, recreation, transportation or adventures. You can watch the trailer here to get a sense. This upbeat program is just the kind of “pick-me-up” that people need to cheer up and go for a ride in these challenging times.

Some of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go to fund SABA’s advocacy work.
