The Friends of the Sacramento River Parkway organized the Sacramento River Parkway Coalition as an association of groups and individuals who want to see the completion of the Sacramento River Parkway from Sutter County to Sacramento's southern city limit.
The Parkway is an on-levee multi-use trail and its related parks and amenities, but it has been stalled for almost forty years by a relative handful of homeowners who claim rights to block all public access to "their"
levee in the Little Pocket and Pocket neighborhoods.
The Friends of the Sacramento River Parkway monitors the agendas of public bodies that oversee our levee, then alerts Coalition members when officials will be considering actions that affect the Parkway's future. Coalition members will help us convince public officials that the overwhelming majority of area residents want access to our river - and the elimination of unnecessary threats to flood safety.
ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN OUR SACRAMENTO RIVER PARKWAY COALITION PHOTOGRAPH - Elle and Jose Bustamante volunteered to be the models for a photograph that would put a face on the issue of access. Their story, chronicled in an ongoing blog, is amazing. They're going car-free and sharing that experience with all who care to read it. Check out their blog at www.tinyhelmetsbigbikes.com.
