This podcast from reSITE, called Design and the City, raises questions and proposes solutions for the city of the future.
In the seventh episode, Christopher Cabaldon, the longest-serving mayor in West Sacramento’s history, an LGBTQ+advocate, talks about the urban regeneration of his city, from a former industrial town to an urbanized, livable community.
West Sacramento, now one of the most livable small towns in America, underwent an incredible transformation during mayor Cabaldon’s on-going 20-year-long office. From a once-abandoned industrial city at the core of the California region, “West Sacramento has become a fascinating story of regeneration in the most fundamental way.”
Originally a professor of public policy at Sacramento State University, Cabaldon has been behind the remaking project.
