Pillar to Post? Try, Rivers to Freeways

The Mayor's Strong Housing Task Force envisions a  fairly broad geographic area as well as a mix of market rate, Affordable and rehabilitated housing.

The area of concentration for the proposed "10,000 new homes" covers the city from "River to River, Freeway to Freeway" according to Cassandra Jennings of the Mayor's Office.  Specifically, it's bounded by the American River to the north, the Sacramento River to the west, Highway 50 to the south and Business 80/Route 160 to the east.  AKA Rivers to Freeways.  That covers Downtown, Midtown and more...

Their preliminary thinking is to encourage the building of about 6,000 "Owner Occupied" market rate housing units, 1,500 additional "Affordable Housing" units and about 1,500 rehab. or " Adaptive re-use" (i.e. re-purposed) housing units.  The Task Force is currently prioritizing and winnowing an initial list of identified issues needing to be addressed into recommendations that will be presented to stakeholders in May and the City Council in July.
