Today the Environmental Council of Sacramento and 350 Sacramento submitted a joint comment letter regarding the County’s General Plan Annual Report, which is on the Board of Supervisors’ March 24 Meeting Agenda as Item No 6.
Board President of the Environmental Council of Sacramento, Ralph Propper, submitted the following comments to the City of Sacramento regarding agenda item 15 at their January 19 meeting: 2040 General Plan Update – Draft Land Use Map, Proposed Roadway Changes, and other Key Strategies. Comments are as follows.
The Environmental Council of Sacramento urges prompt action to implement the recommendations of the Mayors’ Commission on Climate Change into the city’s Climate Action and Adaptation Plan. Our Climate Action goals can only be reached by encouraging transit-oriented, infill development. Therefore, ECOS supports the proposal to allow duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes in Single Family zones, which will permit a greater array of housing options in existing single-unit neighborhoods.

With the City of Sacramento working on updating the City General Plan, we thought we would post this fantastic video created by YouTube creator Tomboy Dru, who humorously breaks down what’s in a General Plan, by providing a general explanation of each General Plan element. These elements include land use, environmental resources, recreation and open space, noise, circulation or mobility, safety, energy, and housing or growth area. We highly recommend this video to gain an understanding of this important document, or to refresh your knowledge! Check out her channel for other great urban planning content, as well!
