Civic Lab is a regional effort that aims to address issues of regional importance through action at the local level. SACOG will work with partner agencies, local experts, national leaders, decision makers, and innovators to find creative solutions to some of the bigger issues facing the region today, and in the future.
The second year of Civic Lab is focused on Commercial Corridors. While some commercial areas in the region are functioning well, many are not. Many have seen disinvestment, aging infrastructure, and vacant buildings. However, these areas are critical to the region. Civic Lab year 2 aims to make these important components of our region’s built environment vibrant places that people want to live, work, and play.
