Streetcar Update

I love walking, but everyone in a while it's nice to get a lift.

Central City Opinion and I received an email asking us to spread the word about the upcoming city council meetings regarding the Streetcar Feasibility.

- City of West Sacramento Council Meeting: May 9th
- Presentation to RT and Yolo County Transportation District: May 14
- City of Sacramento Council Meeting: May 22

Central City has started a discussion on the subject and raises lot of good questions. Head over there now and give your impute.

This is a very important topic on the future of transportation within the central city and West Sacramento. As we see more and more development with the central city and West Sac, we need to have a more efficient way to get people from one place to another for sort trips without having them get in their cars. Light Rail is good for longer trips, but Streetcars similar to Portland Streetcars work great for shorter distances.

West Sacramento's city council meetings are on Sundays? Did you go to yesterday's meeting, and how did it go?

Sounds interesting...where are the times/locations of these meetings?

Incidentally, if you want a chance to check out the inside of Crystal Ice, SOCA is holding an R Street historic tour this Saturday which will include a tour inside of the Crystal Ice plant, with Mark Friedman leading the tour.
