The City of Sacramento Planning and Design Commission will be reviewing and commenting on the “Broadway Vision Plan” document and its recommendations for improving the Broadway corridor at its regular meeting on Thursday, March 14th, 2013, at 5:30pm. The Planning and Design Commission is not being asked to take action at this hearing; it is for review and comment only.
Broadway Vision Study Overview:
ULI Sacramento and the Greater Broadway Partnership organized an active outreach effort, including community forums and public workshops, that served as a guiding road map and investment strategy for successful economic revitalization within the corridor.
A grant was awarded by the Urban Land Institute for the Broadway effort and was led by two of ULI Sacramento’s most experienced leaders in innovative community planning, Mike Notestine and past ULI Chair, Allen Folks. The grant allowed ULI Sacramento to assemble a unique Technical Advisory Panel to assist the Partnership in defining a strategic vision for the Broadway corridor, which has been a vital artery and vibrant commercial district throughout Sacramento’s history.
“This was a true collaboration between the Greater Broadway Partnership and ULI that combined its great expertise and the perspectives and experiences of residents, businesses, and property owners in the Broadway corridor” says Partnership Executive Director Teresa Rocha. “This was a process of rediscovering Broadway’s history and character and how it defines who we are today and what we want to be in the future.”
The Greater Broadway Partnership is a non-profit organization representing the property owners and businesses of the Broadway Business District. The Broadway Partnership works on behalf of district property owners and their tenants to improve district cleanliness and safety, promote activities that will increase economic activity, and represent area interests at various private and governmental forums. The retail establishments and commercial and industrial properties of the Broadway district have long served the vibrant surrounding communities of Land Park, Southside Park, Curtis Park and Richmond Grove, as well as the residents of the downtown/midtown area and the region.
