Sierra 2 Center for the Arts & Community serves as a regional incubator of the arts, education, culture, and community activities.

In the late 1970s, Curtis Park residents joined together to save Sierra School on 24th Street from demolition. The movement to save the school led to the formation of the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association (SCNA) in 1981. Today SCNA manages the transformed school building, now called the Sierra 2 Center for the Arts and Community, as a dynamic center for cultural and educational activities.
The Neighborhood Concerns Committee advocates on the neighborhood’s behalf in land use, transportation, and development projects before the City and the Planning Commission. NCC works with nearby neighborhood, business and community organizations to support and revitalize the Broadway and Franklin commercial corridors, protect trees, improve our local parks, and preserve the quality of life in Sacramento.
