Urban Land Institute Sacramento California Redeveloping the Railyards to Strengthen the Urban Core

At the August Sacramento City Council meeting, Fran Halbakken, City Railyard Development Manager, presented highlights from the final report, “Redeveloping the Railyards to Strengthen the Urban Core,” published by the Urban Land Institute’s Daniel Rose Fellowship Program.

Sacramento was selected as one of four cities in the country to take part in this year-long program with a specific land use challenge of the Railyards as the focus.  City of Sacramento received technical assistance and expertise over the year from a national panel.  The report summarizes the panel’s finding including opportunities and challenges on developing the site.  David Zehnder, ULI Sacramento Chairman, thanked key staff involved in the year long study and offered ULI Sacramento’s support in the future as they continue the vision and planning stages for this important infill project.
