Neighborhood Transformation

Disinvested for over a century, we must revitalize South Stockton by increasing economic vitality and investment in sustainable growth and a shared prosperity for all. A prosperous community needs improved housing and storefronts, but true prosperity is defined by having a better quality of life and what is needed for a positive self-image of our community.

Priorities for Neighborhood Transformation are to improve housing, retail, and public spaces, investment in properties through Opportunity Zones, and ensuring that South Stockton has convenient access to the spaces and resources that it wants.
