Community Design


Community Design

The Community Design Funding Program provides funding to local governments to build placemaking projects in their communities. The projects must implement any of the SACOG Blueprint Principles: (1) housing options (2) transportation options; (3) infill development; (4) mixed land uses; (5) compact development; (6) preservation of natural resources, and (7) quality design. The most commonly awarded projects in the past have been streetscape improvements with associated land use development that are consistent with the Blueprint Principles. The program is available to cities, counties and other local government agencies within Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties. The next call for projects is anticipated to be released the week of April 23, 2018.


Better Ways to Grow

Quality of life concerns are driving communities throughout the State of California and the nation to make growing smarter a top priority. Nowhere is this mission more important than in the six-county Sacramento Region, which is experiencing some of the fastest growth in the state. The region’s political leaders—from Colfax to Isleton and Winters to Placerville—are working together under the umbrella of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments to address these concerns through the Sacramento Region Blueprint: Transportation/Land Use Study.
