The Sacramento City Council began discussing plans to let the Housing and Redevelopment Agency begin plans to rebuild the city’s Alder Grove and Marina Vista low-income communities Tuesday.

The decades-old brick apartments sit along Broadway near downtown.

“I feel safe here. I love all the people here and think it’s time to step forward into the future with Sacramento. That way, we can have something we can be proud of 10 years from now,” said Alder Grove resident Marie Buena.

Tuesday evening’s discussion is the first step in the very long process of tearing down and rebuilding the Alder Grove and Marina Vista apartments, some of the city’s oldest low-income communities. They were built in the 1940’s.
