Help Save Our Neighborhoods!
Sacramento residents are opposing upzoning to densify and eliminate single-family neighborhoods. These include the 2040 General Plan proposed upzoning, SB 9 & SB 10.
These proposals are harmful to neighborhoods and do NOT provide affordable housing NOR do they ensure that ALL Sacramento neighborhoods have save streets, good schools, parks, trees and other quality of life amenities.

Update: The Our Neighborhood Voices ballot initiative is being changed to 2024. Current signature gathering has been suspended and will resume for the 2024 election cycle. This initiative would to overturn SB 9, SB 10, and other state laws that usurp local land use decisions.
See press release.
♦ Smart Densification:
We need affordable housing and smart densification that is well planned, does not overload already overburdened infrastructure, that makes good use of underutilized commercial spaces and does not weaken the fabric of Sacramento’s many and diverse existing single family neighborhoods.
