Re-Envision West Arden Arcade

Project Logo
The Sacramento County Office of Planning and Environmental Review (PER) was awarded a Caltrans Sustainable Communities Grant to prepare a Sustainable Communities and Complete Streets Plan for West Arden Arcade. During the 16-month planning process the County and its consultant, Toole Design Group will work with the community to generate ideas and concepts to create safer and more appealing walking, rolling, bicycling, and driving conditions in West Arden Arcade. ​

Get Involved! 

The extensive community engagement process will kick off with an online survey and a virtual Discovery Charrette (also known as a design workshop).

Online Survey: Online survey will provide the County input on your experience in West Arden Arcade and your vision for your future of the area. 

Discovery Charrette on August 3-6: The virtual charrette will provide multiple opportunities to engage in conversations with the design team, staff, and other members of the community. During the virtual discovery charrette, planners and designers will virtually immerse themselves in the West Arden Arcade community, host four public meetings, conduct additional stakeholder interviews, and start to develop initial design concepts and recommendations based on community feedback. 

The meetings are accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for alternate formats of documents or other accommodations to needed to participate in the meeting should be made by contacting Kristi Grabow at GrabowK@SacCounty.net​, as soon as possible prior to the meeting.​​​
