The Civic Amenities Committee of the Sacramento Metro Chamber is in the process of finalizing its Draft Regional Civic Amenities Strategic Plan (Plan) and is seeking your input as a regional stakeholder. Please submit your comments by December 6, 2013. The Final Civic Amenities Strategic Plan is planned to be released by February 28, 2014.
Investment in the region’s cultural infrastructure is one of the key strategic elements identified in the Next Economy Capital Region Prosperity Plan. This region-wide effort is pursuing a strategic economic development agenda to bring resiliency, vitality, and a wide range of new opportunities for job creation, innovation, and increased investment. The Plan is the culmination of nearly eight years of efforts by the Metro Chamber and Valley Vision and many partnering organizations that started with the Partnership for Prosperity in 2004.
The plan lays out a number of goals and strategies to improve our existing civic amenities and develop additional civic amenities throughout the region.
In preparing the Plan, the Committee recognized that it was not able to identify all of the major Civic Amenities projects in the region. They hope that with your input, there will be a more thorough representation. Please use the Project Description Form posted on the Metro Chamber’s website (http://metrochamber.org/publicpolicy/index.aspx) to submit projects not included in the Plan.
Once all comments are received, the Plan will be updated to reflect feedback and the Metro Chamber will hold a stakeholder workshop in January 2014 to identify any additional regional amenities and comments. The Plan will then be finalized by the end of February.
Metro Chamber staff and Civic Amenities Committee members are available to present the draft Plan to your organization. Please send your comments, project descriptions, requests for a presentation and endorsements to:
