  1. Hey!
    I thought Sacramento’s central city alleys all got named a few years back: Wouldn’t a project like this one be a(nother) perfect mechanism for the public to begin to know them, experience them, enjoy them?
    Strikes me as a basic missed opportunity, to be frank…

    Perhaps there’s an obvious, important reason why not. I’d love to know it…

      You are correct; alleyways in the grid were named in 2011. We unfortunately are not sure as to why a celebration like the Sacramento Mural Festival was not pursued earlier, however, we are enthused by the progress made by muralists over the weekend.

      Here’s a great article that talks about alleyway activation in 2015:
