The Oak Park Project brings together new development opportunities, a strong interest in health careers for residents, and the desire for all Oak Park residents to benefit from positive neighborhood changes.
In February 2018, the Sacramento City Council made a $5 million investment to purchase, rehabilitate and lease two buildings in Oak Park. The City Council designated Sierra Health Foundation as the lead for the Oak Park Project because of its long history of promoting health and racial equity in partnership with communities. Sierra Health Foundation and its nonprofit partner, The Center, will own and manage the project properties in trust for the benefit of Oak Park community residents.
Members of the Trust Advisory Committee (TAC) will give advice and make recommendations about the operation of the Oak Park Trust Project, and will guide decisions about funds it raises and how they are used. The TAC will be made up of community members, business leaders and staff from the City and the Foundation/Center — all working toward a common goal of using these new resources to provide the most benefit to the Oak Park Community.
TAC members will have many different skills, a commitment to working together and a desire to get things done. They will be residents of different ages, backgrounds and histories who represent the diversity of Oak Park. Inclusivity, equity, integrity, respect and compassion are important values for each member to embrace.
TAC members will serve two-year terms and meet monthly for 1.5 hours. No member will serve for more than two consecutive terms. TAC members are volunteers and are not compensated for their time or service.
We will post updates soon.
