Neighborhood Concerns
The Neighborhood Concerns Committee (NCC) is a committee authorized by the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association's Board of Directors. The NCC develops strategies and sponsors programs to improve the Curtis Park neighborhood. One of the key duties of the NCC is to be an advocate for the neighborhood before the City of Sacramento and its Planning Commission for land use and transportation policy issues and encourage development projects that will benefit the neighborhood now and in the future. NCC works jointly with nearby neighborhood, business and community organizations to support and revitalize the Broadway and Franklin commercial corridors, to protect heritage trees, to improve our local parks and to preserve the quality of life in Sacramento.

Curtis Park Village
SCNA also reaches out to the neighborhood on issues that affect the residents, and is involved in projects that have the most significant impact on our neighborhood. Currently, the project that has the potential to have the greatest impact on our community is the Curtis Park Village (CPV) project proposal pending in the City for approval. SCNA is concerned that it will have more commercial square footage (260,000 sq. ft.) than our local streets can handle. The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) predicts that it will drive enormous amounts of traffic through our neighborhood, and the proposed Big Box stores will jeopardize nearby business districts. SCNA has advocated for a transit oriented development that includes housing density near both light rail stations. The SCNA Board has been working for years to help ensure that the Curtis Park Village development is in keeping with the rest of the Curtis Park community.

Neighborhood Preservation and History
SCNA actively participates in preserving the heritage of the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood and Sacramento. The Heritage Committee advances this purpose by gathering and publicizing information on the history of our area and promoting preservation and appreciation of our historic buildings. The Heritage Committee supports the annual Home and Garden Tour by researching and promoting historical information on our homes and subdivisions. Find out more here.

Energy Stars
The Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association has partnered with SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) to reduce home energy use on a neighborhood wide basis. Curtis Park is the first Sacramento neighborhood, and most likely the first neighborhood in the state, to engage in such a project. You can help by filling out a pledge form and monitoring your energy consumption on a monthly basis with the goal of reducing electric use. Find out more here.
