The City of Sacramento has identified 18 areas that might receive more resources in the future.
The areas are called "priority neighborhoods" and include Del Paso Heights, Twin Rivers, Oak Park, and Mack Road.
But, some members of the City Council say the list is incomplete.
Members including Eric Guerra asked the Community Development Department to consult non-profit organization databases of poverty, pollution and education, then re-examine the list of 18 neighborhoods.
"Whether you're on one side of Stockton Boulevard or the other, the impacts of the same regardless of where the district lines land. So, I'd like to see if we can use some of those guiding factors as a consideration in developing our policy."
The mayor and council set a goal this year of neighborhoods that are in need of assistance because of high crime, poverty, and unemployment rates.
The department could return to council with a new map of neighborhoods this summer.
