Sacramento Mayor Heather Fargo announced the new partnership during the opening of a recent urban infill project in the city. Led by the region's major homebuilder trade group, the Roseville-based North State Building Industry Association, the effort has strong support from the regional planning agency, Sacramento Area Council of Governments.

"In March, the state Department of Housing and Community Development identified nearly 5,600 potential infill sites in existing neighborhoods of El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties that could accommodate up to 73,400 new homes and apartments. Their average size is about an acre, and more than half are vacant."
