Once “Plan B” for a downtown arena failed to materialize, the Think Big Sacramento organization shifted gears and is now taking a broader look at possibilities for developing the more than 200 acre railyards site.
Several suggestions have already come up for the site, including:
Jared Ficker, a spokesman for Inland Inland American Real Estate Trust, the Illinois firm that owns most of the railyards, said in a recent Sacramento Bee article that the company welcomes the help of Think Big.
“Think Big helps build community support for a project of this magnitude; they have an understanding of what the community wants,” Flicker said.
So, what does the community want?
We’ve outlined a few suggestions that were mentioned in the Bee article and that the mayor and others have brought up. What would you add? What do you think could or should be built at the raliyards site?
Take a minute to vote on the ones we’ve listed, or suggest your own ideas in the comment section, and we’ll add them to the poll as we go along.
Once we’ve incorporated all your suggestions and have a list of interesting ideas, we’ll hand-deliver them to the mayor and Think Big Executive Director Kunal Merchant.Melissa Corker is a staff reporter for The Sacramento Press. Follow her on Facebook and on Twitter @MelissaCorker.
