Building a Region Together: SACOG’s Blueprint Workshop
Join the conversations that will help shape the region's future on June 16
May 30, 2023: The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is preparing to host the Blueprint Workshop on June 16, and anticipation is high. This event is a unique opportunity for community members, planners, and local leaders to collaborate on a shared vision for the region. Brace yourself for an unforgettable experience that will shape the trajectory of our region for years to come!
Being held at the Folsom Community Center, the Blueprint Workshop is a highly interactive event designed to encourage collaboration, share knowledge, and generate innovative ideas. Community members throughout the region are an integral part of it. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in interactive activities, where input shared will directly influence the strategies and plans that will be part of the 2025 Blueprint, the Sacramento region’s long-range transportation and land use plan.
The Blueprint Workshop promises an array of engaging and insightful sessions that delve into the critical issues shaping our communities. Expect to be immersed in thought-provoking discussions on topics such as transportation, housing, and the environment.
SACOG’s Executive Director James Corless will serve as an integral part of the Blueprint Workshop by giving a presentation on the current state of the region. In discussing the importance of community involvement in the workshop, Corless says, “This event isn’t just about passive listening—it’s about active participation. The Blueprint Workshop is a platform where you can share your ideas and concerns that will impact the shared strategy for the region, the 2025 Blueprint.”
The participation of individuals who represent cities and counties, elected officials, developers, planners, and community-based organizations is critical for the success of the 2025 Blueprint. These stakeholders will be implementing the plan, which makes their involvement in its creation essential.
Sacramento County Supervisor and SACOG Board Chair Patrick Kennedy emphasized the possibilities offered at the event. “Engaging in discussions on transportation can allow us to explore innovative solutions to reduce traffic congestion, improve public transit, and promote alternative transportation options,” said Kennedy. “The interplay between housing, recreation, and jobs directly impacts the development of roads, public transit systems, and active transportation networks, shaping the overall mobility and connectivity of the region.”
SACOG’s Blueprint Workshop is an extraordinary opportunity to shape the future of our region and the 2025 Blueprint. It is a call to action, an invitation to be part of something greater than a single city or county. So, mark your calendars, gather your ideas, and prepare to contribute your unique voice!
