Sacramento City Council members Tuesday will vote on a plan to spend $150,000 on streetscape improvements. Celia Yniguez with the city’s Housing and Redevelopment Agency says it’s a key area that includes new development projects at 65th Street. 

"What we’re trying to do is establish a 65th Street Village – a mix of groundfloor retail, office, lots of housing with great pedestrian and bicycle connections to the light rail."

Right now, Elvas Avenue has rolled curbs that allow cars to drive and park on the sidewalk, making it dangerous for pedestrians. The streetscape plan would improve pedestrian safety and add more landscaping.
