Technical Assistance Programs

Overview

Technical Assistance for Community Revitalization
MTP/SCS Implementation in Different Places

Infill and redevelopment, mixed-use development, pedestrian and bike-friendly main streets, thriving businesses, transit as an asset, community engagement, safe streets and public spaces—the combination and permutations of these goals and objectives are as varied as the communities in the Sacramento region. Our communities include small cities with fewer resources, mature suburbs, rural and agricultural towns, urban cities and downtowns, and disadvantaged neighborhoods. Among them all are common themes of planning, economic development and infrastructure challenges…but solutions still need to be tailored to each community.

With generous funding from a Strategic Growth Council Sustainable Communities Planning Grant (3rd round), SACOG brings technical assistance programs to help our member cities and counties identify your unique community revitalization solutions.
