Aggie Square, UC Davis’s new innovation center in Sacramento, is scheduled to open its doors a year from now. What impact is it going to have in the neighborhoods surrounding it, especially when it comes to housing prices and gentrification? UC Davis and the City of Sacramento are spending $10 million to prevent people in that neighborhood from being displaced, but how will their plan work in practicality?
The Solving Sacramento journalism collaborative is hosting its next “Suds and Solutions” community discussion on this very topic. The talk will be Wednesday, Jan. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Brickhouse Gallery & Art Complex in Oak Park. Attendees will hear from people who worked on UC Davis and Sacramento’s anti-displacement plan, along with the organizations tasked with making it a reality. The event is free for anyone to attend.
Oak Park Brewery will be providing beer and Texas T&R BBQ will have food on-hand: Both businesses are next door to Brickhouse, making this a true evening for the neighborhood. The public can register to attend the event here.
If you want to follow future evenings like this, and other news happenings in the city, Solving Sacramento also has a brand-new newsletter. Readers can sign up for it here.
The collaborative is supported by funding from the James Irvine Foundation and the James B. McClatchy Foundation. Its partners include Sacramento News & Review, Sacramento Observer, Sacramento Business Journal, Outward, California Groundbreakers, Capital Public Radio, Russian America Media and Univision 19.
