New Plan, New Growth Pattern

The City of Sacramento is looking to change its growth pattern as it prepares a new version of its general plan.

"The new general plan in the works for the city of Sacramento marks a big departure from growth as usual."

"Rather than embracing a future of strip malls and single-family homes, a draft map endorsed by the Sacramento City Council in June envisions a far more urban Sacramento than exists today."

"Tired-looking arteries now devoted mostly to shopping would be transformed with thousands of housing units."

"'We're looking at a different way to accommodate growth; it's not just going to be out, it's going to be in,' said City Councilman Rob Fong."
