Sacramento Mayor Steinberg Touts Progress On Development In Latest 'State Of The City' Address

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) -- Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg says the future is in residences' hands during his State of the City speech Wednesday morning.

Steinberg said the city is coming out of the grips of a crippling pandemic, which has pushed city services to the limit.

Still, he touted the city's balanced budget and plans to expand health and social services through groups like the YMCA.

The city is now looking for a developer to build a new eight-story YMCA on the same site that would provide childcare and house families experiencing homelessness.

He also said the city has dramatically increased permitting and construction for affordable housing needs.

"It's still not enough, but it's a big stride," Steinberg said.

Steinberg also noted that the city has increased shelter and "Safeground" capacity from 100 to 1,100 beds per night.
