The group's Executive Director Michael Ault says a combination of efforts by private groups and city government is paving the way for a new kind of downtown experience.

"Our goal is to not just have us go to an 8 o'clock concert or a 7:30 game, but to come two hours be part of  an active, urban district that gives you opportunities whether or not you even have a ticket to this event."

Ault spoke at the partnership's annual State of Downtown Breakfast.  He said the group has joined with Dignity Health to address the homeless problem and with the police department to address nuisance crimes downtown.

Transportation was also a focal point of the downtown forecast. As part of the refurbishing of downtown, the City of Sacramento will begin a Sacramento Train Station renovation this spring.

Construction on a street car line connecting Sacramento and West Sacramento is expected to break ground next summer.
