Sacramento insiders report an influx of Portland planners Portland who see the Saramento region as a young Portland.
"The choice of McKeever to lead Sacramento's most influential regional planning institution came just two weeks after the city of Sacramento chose Portland development chief Ray Kerridge to do the same job here.
Kerridge will oversee the city's effort to streamline its building permit process and remove obstacles to urban "infill" projects.
In addition to these high-profile positions, many more planners, architects and construction professionals who helped create the 1990s building boom in Portland's urban neighborhoods have set their sights on Sacramento, particularly downtown, midtown and the city of Davis."
