Changes to Residential Parking Permits

Posted: 10/2/2015

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Residents of West Sacramento who reside in the Washington, West Capitol, or Bridge Districts should plan to attend a future City Council meeting where this change will be voted on by the council members. Substantial changes will likely take place within the Residential Permit Parking Program.

The City of West Sacramento currently issues and manages street permits that meet a portion of the parking requirement for some areas. Eventually, they will begin to secure and improve property for surface lots that will become parking structures. Their hope is to reduce on-street parking or even eliminate it.

WUSD Opens Professional Culinary Program

Posted: 9/25/2015

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - In August, the Washington Unified School District (WUSD) officially launched the Culinary Arts and Farm-to-Fork Education Program, known as CAFFE. CAFFE is located on the grounds of the old Bryte Elementary School that was closed due to low enrollment. WUSD is revitalizing the campus by repurposing it for career training.

This revitalization begins with CAFFE, but also with an ongoing construction program. Future career pathway programs will include STEM-related fields (science, technology, engineering, and math), carpentry, design, bio-sciences, and health. “We want to make this site the career pathways center for the city,” said Giorgos Kazanis, the administrator of communication and community outreach for the district. The next stage of expansion is slated to be in 2017.

Hometown Heroes Honored in Capitol Parade

Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, and Anthony Sadler
Riding a hero-mobile on Capitol Mall, Alek Skarlatos, Spencer Stone, and Anthony Sadler, bask in cheers from 10,000 admirers - their actions to thwart a terror attack brought international fame for the Carmichael and Rancho Cordova-raised trio.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler, and Alek Skarlatos began a European vacation as ordinary tourists. The chums returned home as international heroes.

Armed with quick wits and aided by luck the Christian trio regard as divine intervention, they prevented a massacre that might have turned a train ride from Amsterdam into murder on the European express. Disabling an armed-to-the-teeth terrorist is now their legend—and probably inspiration for future movies. Meantime, France’s Legion of Honor award, TV appearances, and hero worship are their overwhelming lot.

But homecoming topped all previous thrills. “We’ve been all over the world these last couple of weeks,” an emotional Anthony Sadler said at last week’s Sacramento rally. “All the thanks we’ve received don’t compare to being in front of our home crowd like this.”

Installer Secures Solar Panel to Residential Roof
Solar panels are installed on a residential roof.

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - One year ago, the California State Legislature adopted AB 2188. This bill serves to encourage the installation and use of solar energy systems. The California State Legislature believes that this use can be more easily accomplished by limiting the obstacles to their use and minimizing the cost of permits. Government Code section 65850.5 requires that on or before September 30th, every city and county must adopt an ordinance that creates an expedited, streamlined permitting process for small residential rooftop solar energy systems.
