LivinginUrbanSac is one of my favorite sites on the web. Of course, that’s probably because I live in “UrbanSac” and have a large fascination with what’s going on in the walkable parts of Sacramento. Even if you’re not from Sacramento, it is a great site to scope out because it is a highlight reel of sorts for a city that’s rapidly becoming a hip and upper class American city. Yes, Sacramento—I strongly believe that this city is going to be mentioned in the same breath as other elite walkable cities around the US in a few years (mainly because we have a great grid system, a fantastic tree canopy, and so many mixed-use developments in the urban core). I have yet to find a better website that covers the projects and issues occurring in our urban core. There are similar sites in other second-tier cities like Sacramento, and I think sites like these are important to keep spreading the walkability message in places that are starting to see urban renewal and revitalization of the urban core. Therefore, LivinginUrbanSac is our pick for website of the month of November.
LivinginUrbanSac will be considered for the 2006 Walkable Neighborhoods Website of the Year award, along with the past and future recipients of the monthly awards.
A note for those of you that noticed I’ve cheated on this posting—we all get a little busy sometimes!!
