In December Sacramento started accepting submissions from all ages for new businesses, playgrounds, and more. Those submissions are being accepted online . Officials may choose and possibly build the most popular idea. Winning ideas may get up to $6,000 in prize money. You can submit your ideas for the new Waterfront here.
Submissions for both the kids and all ages competitions are due March 11, 2019.
In addition to the ideas submitted by the public, the city is deciding between several design firms to build new businesses in the Old Sacramento Waterfront area.
