FREE EVENT: Is the Central Valley Finally Embracing Its Urban Future?

The Central Valley is rapidly transforming from a predominately rural landscape into a growing urban center.

In order to discuss the changes occurring in the area, the California Wellness Foundation and Zócalo Public Square have joined forces to bring you “Is the Central Valley Finally Embracing Its Urban Future?”

What more must California’s Central Valley do to embrace its new reality? And how can valley cities build healthier communities for their citizens?

The free event will be moderated by The Sacramento Bee’s Editorial Page Editor Dan Morain, and feature Fresno State president Joseph I. Castro, Valley Vision Managing Director Meg Arnold, and Placer County Schools Superintendent Gayle Garbolino-Mojica.

When: Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 12:00 p.m.

Where: Capitol Event Center, 1020 11th St., Sacramento, CA 95814
