SIMPLy, a healthy and sustainable future of opportunity, inclusion and integration.
CREATING CONNECTIVITY & FOSTERING COMMUNITY
Sacramento Multimodal Place-Base Living (SIMPL) is a collection of projects and plans that seek to support the transformation of Sacramento's predominantly industrial River District and downtown neighborhoods into communities where you can live, work and play. SIMPL is led by the Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA) and implemented alongside its community partners.
SIMPL's projects adds new housing, urban greening, parks, a community garden, and sustainability features to the project area. Also, the new Dos Rios light rail station, micro-transit and mobility hub will provide more transportation options, so you can get to where you need to go.
Additionally, SIMPL is committed to improving the economic development of the community through jobs training, residential and small business displacement avoidance, and community information-sharing and input through community engagement through Transformative Plans.
The strategies and innovative, integrated approach SIMPL uses to deliver this transformation will contribute to increases in the overall health and vibrancy of the city. Overall, SIMPL seeks to improve the quality of life for those living and working in Sacramento's River District and downtown neighborhoods.
SIMPL is supported by California Strategic Growth Council’s Transformative Climate Communities Program with funds from California Climate Investments – Cap-and-Trade Dollars at Work.
The SIMPL Project Area extends from Richards Boulevard and the American River to L Street at its north-south boundary and 20th Street to Jiboom Street and Sacramento River at its east-west boundary.
