Come watch a short film and join in a discussion in celebration of National Community Planning Month. We will be watching “Replacing the Past - Sacramento's Redevelopment History”, a 30-minute film which examines the massive and controversial urban renewal efforts to remake downtown Sacramento during the 1950s and 60s. These redevelopment projects, including the creation of Capitol Mall, Old Sacramento, Interstate 5, Macy's and the K Street Mall significantly changed the urban core of Sacramento, shuttering hundreds of businesses and displacing thousands of residents, especially the city's ethnic populations. We will hear from the filmmaker, Chris Lango, and discuss what we can learn from our planning history as Sacramento goes through a new period of redevelopment and change.
