Tree Love

Help your tree thrive so it can provide shade, beauty and habitat, clean the air and water, and make our cities and towns healthier and more livable for decades to come.

Why Plant Trees?

Trees are constantly working for us. They clean our air and water, help us save energy, provide wildlife habitat, and increase our quality of life. They are a legacy we plant and leave for future generations. Learn more about how trees impact our community health and how you can bring the benefits of trees to your neighborhood.

Public-Private Partnerships for Developing Affordable Housing

West Sacramento Community Center, West Sacramento

Friday, August 25 8:30A - 10:30A

Since 2012 and the changes to redevelopment agencies in the State, affordable housing has been more difficult to finance and construct. Developers and local agencies have had to be more creative about assembling funding sources, leveraging new financial tools, and being more collaborative. Public-private partnerships (PPP) within the Sacramento region have successfully tackled the issues of affordable housing and can help guide future projects. The West Gateway Place project was the first project in the State with an Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) grant to break ground. The first vertical project in the new Downtown Railyards will be an affordable housing project that leverages the previous investments in infrastructure and will benefit from future public and private funding for parks, schools, and other urban amenities benefiting these future residents.
