Advocacy and Stewardship
The Neighborhood Concerns Committee (NCC) is authorized by the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association’s Board of Directors to develop strategies and sponsor programs to improve the Curtis Park neighborhood. One of the key duties of the NCC is to advocate on the neighborhood’s behalf in land use, transportation, and development projects before the City of Sacramento and the Planning Commission. NCC works jointly with nearby neighborhood, business and community organizations to:
- support and revitalize the Broadway and Franklin commercial corridors,
- protect heritage trees,
- improve our local parks, and
- preserve the quality of life in Sacramento.
The Neighborhood Concerns Committee is engaged in a number of issues including:
- the development of Crocker Village,
- Traffic Concerns, and
- City Tree Ordinances.
