Civic Lab Marketplace on May 22


Developers, Architects, Finance Professionals, and Private Sector Consultants: Join us for the Civic Lab Marketplace

Join the Sacramento Area Council of Governments, in partnership with the Urban Land Institute, Sacramento, for the Civic Lab Marketplace on May 22 at the CADA Courtyard in Sacramento. 

Actively collaborate with 12 Civic Lab project teams at The Marketplace to develop and launch solutions that revitalize aging commercial corridors in the Sacramento region. You’ll tour project sites, hear corridor visions, and have the opportunity to start pilot project discussions with teams.

This event is free to attend but pre-registration is required and space is limited to elected officials, private sector entities, project teams, and legislative staff. A social hour is included. 

Request more information or RSVP by May 15 to Katie Brunetti at KBrunetti@sacog.org.

4 Reasons You Should Attend The Marketplace:

1. Become a pre-qualified vendor 
Learn how to become pre-qualified which allows you to contract directly with project teams through SACOG’s Request for Qualifications. This unique approach streamlines procurement and expedites project delivery. Last year, 10 Civic Lab projects were awarded over $2M of combined private investment and dedicated public sector funding.

2. Create projects with ready teams 
Project teams are willing to create disruptive, innovative solutions. They represent 12 commercial corridor project areas, have executive buy-in, and include property owners and public space for pilot projects. Teams consist of economic development and planning staff, property/business owners, developers, and PBIDs. They will pitch their visions at The Marketplace.

3. See first hand the opportunities for change 
See sites ripe for housing innovation, visit areas with storefronts in need of re-design, and discuss areas for feasibility studies during guided corridor project tours.

4. Put your work in front of California’s leaders 
Meet legislative staff, local elected officials, and national leaders. Your expertise will guide small-scale pilot design that can lead to scaled implementation, inform policy changes at the local and state level, and develop future iterations of the Civic Lab program
