The Sacramento-based trade group Region Builders announced this week they will be meeting with officials from several Sacramento-region governments including the City of Elk Grove to discuss their policy platform.
In their Monday morning Email, Region Builders said "this week, we are meeting with leaders from El Dorado County, Sacramento City, Sacramento County, Elk Grove, SACOG, and Rancho Cordova on public policy proposals created by our Region Builders Committees."
In their eight page policy platform, Region Builders has seven policy areas including procurement & economic development, work force development & education, development processing streamlining, government reform & accountability, fee reductions, land use & entitlements and green building.
Some of the highlights in Region Builders platform includes opposition to local hire ordinances, support of fee deferrals and opposition to local cap and trade on building.
The platform also supports the Southeast Connector project noting the billion dollar project already has a third of the required funding. It also notes that "we have members who are proposing projects south of Grantline" Road.
The report did not specify where south of Grantline Road the proposed projects are located or whether they were employment centers or more housing developments. The Email did not specify when or what public officials Region Builders would be meeting with this week.
