Water Wisely

Trees are the most valuable asset in your yard and actually use less water than many other popular landscape features. Learn how to keep your trees healthy when converting to a low or no water use landscape by following the tips below.

Dedicate a Tree

Planting a tree is one way to establish a living memorial that will bring peace, joy and security for generations. Likewise, the planting of a tree can be a gratifying act, which honors the memory of a friend or relative, or recognizes a special person or occasion.

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.
