City of Sacramento

This work included reviewing and summarizing previous planning studies, like the ULI Broadway Vision Plan and Docks Specific Plan to understand how they relate to the current opportunity; collecting information on approved and proposed development projects; and gathering data on existing conditions including land use, zoning, walkability and bike-ability, transportation, crime, parks and open space, vacant and deteriorated properties, other subsidized housing, and existing public/private institutions and amenities such as banks, health clinics, and grocery/drug stores.
