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. This booklet is part of that effort, and provides some examples of what the region’s communities can accomplish when they seek to grow smarter.
