Overview
The Sacramento Convention Center (SCC) Expansion and Renovation project is part of a $350 Million landmark program, enhancing and transforming aging cultural facilities into modern and synergistic public congregation centers with refreshed character and improved guest and patron experiences. A main goal of this project is to revitalize downtown Sacramento’s Entertainment District, hence active and regular community involvement and support for this program has been playing a particularly important role.
