SOCA HISTORY AND ACTIVISM
The Sacramento Old City Association (SOCA) formed in 1972, when Sacramento residents banded together to form a downtown advocacy group to protect the city’s architectural charm and character. Since that time, SOCA has advocated on behalf of the city’s historic neighborhoods, commercial properties and civic landmarks to ensure Sacramento remains a cultural center for the region.
SOCA is an all volunteer organization, whose members devote their time to increasing public awareness of the irreplaceable historic and cultural resources of the city. Other activities include advocating policies that ensure a quality urban environment that is respectful of our historic buildings and traditional neighborhoods.
The Capitol Area Development Authority (CADA) would like to relocate the 40’ by 40’ foot front portion of the Art Moderne apartment building located at 1517 N Street. Environmental testing results for the building are available. Relocation would need to be completed no later than December 31, 2013. CADA has already determined that it will not be feasible to move the building south of the W-X Freeway, east of the Capital City Freeway, or under light rail power lines due to low clearance and the height of the building. Some funding is available to assist with moving costs. Interested parties are asked to contact CADA Operations Director, Marc de la Vergne, at 324-3913 or at email@example.com.
