Founded in April 1973, Sacramento Regional Transit operates over 80 bus routes, 43 miles of light rail serving 52 light rail stations, and ADA paratransit services within Sacramento County. In 2019, SacRT’s annual ridership was 21 million passengers and it has been continually recognized for its regional collaboration and innovation. Henry Li, SacRT’s General Manager/CEO, served on the Mayor’s Commission on Climate Change, and during CRC’s last webinar/quarterly meeting, SacRT shared their response to COVID-19 and recent developments.
Sacramento Association of REALTORS (SAR) was founded in 1908 and its mission is to enhance the ability of its members to practice their profession ethically and effectively, to serve the community, and to protect private property rights. SAR initiatives include the REALTOR Action Fund, SAR Commercial, SAR Community Foundation (which focuses on supporting sustainable initiatives, among other projects) and the SAR Scholarship Fund. Further details on SAR’s community projects can be found here. SAR’s Chief Executive Officer, David Tanner, was a Commissioner with the Mayor’s Commission on Climate Change in 2020.
In January, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved the first-ever Placer County Sustainability Plan (PCSP) – a road map to meet California’s greenhouse gas emission reduction goals and reduce the county’s vulnerability to climate risks like worsening wildfire severity. And more recently in June, the PCSP was selected by the Sacramento Valley Section APA for the Award of Merit in the category of Innovation in Green Community Planning!
The City of Woodland is located in Yolo County, approximately 15 miles northwest of Sacramento. The City has been actively working to advance sustainability initiatives to reduce emissions, expand their tree canopy, steward precious resources, and much, much more! You can see a sampling of their initiatives here, which includes the City’s Climate Action Plan that was adopted in 2017.
