About

These days, Sacramento’s Meadowview neighborhood is known mostly as the place where police shot and killed Stephon Clark. It has a reputation for crime, violence and lack of opportunity. But there’s more than meets the eye in Meadowview. The problems facing this working class neighborhood reflect years of neglect, poor city planning and ongoing demographic change. Residents are responding by connecting with each other, innovating solutions, and throwing out the rule book on how a neighborhood can make a comeback. This year, CapRadio tells the story of Meadowview, taking a deep dive into the history and daily life in this south Sacramento neighborhood. Meadowview’s stories are at once unique, yet common to cities across California and the country.

As part of our process, we’re connecting with people who live and work in Meadowview to listen and learn. We’re hosting public conversations and community gatherings to find out how residents see the place they call home. We’re studying what they’re telling us to ensure that our reporting is relevant, meaningful and accurate.
