Upcoming events: Strategies for Stockton Blvd

The City is partnering with residents, business owners, landowners, and organizations to strengthen the Stockton Blvd corridor as a vital core for the surrounding neighborhoods and region, maintaining and improving it as a great place for existing residents and businesses while also providing space for future growth.

The Stockton Blvd Plan is a partnership between the City of Sacramento, community members, and organizations to transform Stockton Blvd into a thriving corridor that expands opportunities for, and supports the cultures of, existing residents and small businesses while accommodating growth and centering racial equity.

Topic 1. Housing & Anti-displacement.
