In a time where the G 20 summit has mixed feelings and demands, it is reassuring to know that there are some places in the world where the word ‘environment’ has been revered with serious action. Sacramento, according to the journal, American bicyclist, ranks fourth in the country for bicycle commuting. Business professionals and specialists are claiming that the use of bicycles is more viable than the regular transport for two reasons – pollution free atmosphere and healthier lifestyles.
The New Year has also brought in the hopes of constructing a new sports and entertainment center which would create more opportunity in terms of jobs, about 4,095 jobs would further boost the economic development, as per the research reports of the Sacramento First Task Force. This report is buttressed by the Sacramento Metro Chamber confirming the development of the economy. The Sacramento First Task force is currently reviewing proposals and considering the use of the Sacramento Rail yards, Westfield Downtown Plaza, area at Cal Expo, and land near Arco Arena and the docks near downtown Sacramento.
The Cities of Service and the Rockefeller foundation is a an alliance of U.S. mayors that encourages volunteerism and Sacramento is one of the 10 nations worldwide, that will receive a $200,000 grant to develop a citywide plan and further boost volunteerism. It is observed that the cities chosen to receive grants are committed to innovative and thorough methods that will help develop the cities and thereby foster volunteerism to further impact the city. The chief service officer, who will be employed through the grant, would have to generate and realize a service plan for the whole city by forming a committee of service experts and stakeholders who would evaluate the current service standards and further identify partnerships that would strengthen the local volunteerism. The chief service officer would directly report to the mayor or higher authority in the administration of his or her respective city.
All the 10 cities chosen for the volunteerism plan would have to report on the progress of their plan and launch a website to foster volunteerism and service opportunities. The cities selected for volunteerism were chosen on the basis of the existence of 100,000 or more inhabitants in the area and the presence of a community college or a four year public or private university. It is heartening to know that Sacramento homes are on sale as development in education, public safety, homelessness and the environment continue to be high priority, which will only be further bolstered with the volunteerism plans.
The mayors across the U.S have identified that service through volunteerism would be a significant tool to enable them in managing local problems and focus important development issues within their own cities. The healthcare in Sacramento has been immune to recession and has generated 3000 jobs in the last two years employing more Sacramento inhabitants than the state government (89,000 vs. 82,000).Ryan Sharp, head of the center for economic research has identified healthcare to be a winner for Sacramento.
