The West Sacramento Streetcar

LivingInUrbanSac points out that the city's Preservation Commission is discussing the concept a streetcar running on the Capitol Mall.

For those interested in the West Sacramento Streetcar project, here's the draft EIR that was before the Sacramento City Preservation Committee on April 1, 2009:
