Port of Sacramento
The Port of Sacramento, now known as the Port of West Sacramento, is an inland port in West Sacramento, California in the Sacramento metropolitan area. It is 79 nautical miles northeast of San Francisco, is centered in the California Central Valley, one of the richest agricultural regions in the world. Construction of the Port of Sacramento was first approved by Congress under the Rivers and Harbors Act of July 24, 1946; this act approved the construction of the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel, a 30 feet deep, 43 mile long shipping channel from Suisun Bay to an inland harbor at Washington Lake. The project started construction 3 years in 1949 and the port was opened to deep sea traffic in 1963. Since July 1, 2013 the port and its operations are being leased by SSA Marine from the Port of Sacramento for a minimum of 5 years for a minimum annual payment of $650,000; this move by the port is intended to allow it to shift focus on developing its other available real estate assets, further the growth of the port.
It transfers all liabilities and operational expenses to SSA Marine. The Port of Sacramento does not receive the high volume of ships; this is because the Port of Sacramento is a “Non-Container” port. The majority of all shipping worldwide is done by container ships and the fact that the Port of Sacramento is not set up to handle this type of cargo cuts it out of a large percentage of port traffic; the Port of Sacramento’s cargo is of the agricultural and heavy equipment type, the port specializes in bulk cargo. This works out well for the port because of its location in a dense agricultural region; some of the ports’ main cargo is the exportation of local agriculture such as rice, wheat and corn along with other local products such as lumber, cement and metals. The Port of Sacramento is set up to handle heavy machinery such as wind turbines, steel and transformers. Deepwater channel is about 30 feet. Channel length is 43 miles and the Port size is 1,112 acre; the Port specializes in bulk, break-bulk and construction cargo.
The port handles large volume of bulk cargo One 120 ton mobile harbor crane. For rail the Port has both Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroads lines for North America shipping. Local rail Sierra Northern Railway; the port is serviced by Highways: Interstate 5, Interstate 80 and California State Route 99. The Port is part of the California Green Trade Corridor project, as ships move cargo much greener than trucks and trains. Green Trade Corridor Marine Highway can improve goods movement through Northern California. Future cruise ship port as a substitute for high quality Sacramento hotels during national and international Golden 1 Center events such as the NBA All-Star Game, Olympic Games, etc... The Port of West Sacramento is an independent special district created by the State of California, governed by a commission of four appointees by the Mayor of West Sacramento and one by the county board of supervisors; the Port is managed by the city of West Sacramento and has projects to expand the services of the port.
In February 2010 in partnership with the ports of Oakland and Stockton, the Port of Sacramento has received a $30 million award from the United States Department of Transportation as part of its America's Marine Highway Program. This program is designed to increase the amount of goods transported across the U. S. on ships and therefore decrease the amount transported by trucks and rail. This is thought to have many economic benefits; this funding will be used to start a movement of containers between all three of these ports. The Port of Sacramento has since used a portion of this funding in order to give it the ability to accept containers; the main thing they have done is purchased a crane that will allow the port to lift containers on and off the ships or barges. Sacramento has high hopes for its port to increase its cargo traffic and economic output with these advancements. One of the main issues with the Port of Sacramento is that the Deep Water Ship Channel needs to be dredged to maintain an adequate depth for oceangoing ships.
This dredging process presents a number including how it impacts the water quality. One measure of quality is the salinity of the water; as the channel is deepened, more salt water from the bay enters the system to maintain sea level, an issue because the affected area includes drinking water intakes. These intakes require that the water be below a certain maximum salinity level that can be exceeded due to the dredging; the salinity of the water can have negative effects on local fisheries. Dredging disturbs rare and endangered species. One of these species is the Delta smelt which has its main spawning grounds in and around the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Channel; the dredging itself can harm the spawning habitat directly by destroying eggs placed by the fish in the dredging zone. The spawning habitat can be disturbed by the increase in salinity, the increased traffic the dredging will allow, the noise created while dredging. Another species affected by the dredging and the water quality is the winter run salmon.
In order to maintain the water quality needed for this species' habitat, additional releases from upstream reservoirs will need to be made. These releases will negatively affect the amount of water stored in the reservoirs, needed for drinking water, agricultural purposes as well as providing cold water flows for the migration of the salmon. In other words, there may not be enough fresh water to make sure the salinity levels are maintained under
Midtown Sacramento is a historical district and neighborhood just east of Downtown Sacramento. Midtown's borders are R Street on the South, J Street on the North, 16th Street on the West and 30th Street on the East. However, the streets in Sacramento's original "grid" that are east of 16th Street cover the area called "Midtown"; this more general definition covers an area bounded by Broadway on the South, C street and the Southern Pacific rail lines on the North, 16th Street on the West and Alhambra Boulevard on the East.

The Midtown community is diverse in terms of income brackets. Many legislators choose to live in various spots in Midtown when the California legislature is in session. Increasing in-fill developments consisting of upscale lofts have priced out some residents. Historic sites such as Sutter's Fort, the first European settlement in Sacramento, are located in Midtown. Midtown is known for being pedestrian-friendly and bike-friendly with continuous marked bike-lanes throughout the neighborhood and a bike path connecting to the American River Parkway which extends to Folsom. Public transit consists of Sacramento Regional Transit District light-rail lines running down R Street connecting the neighborhood to the metropolitan area and bus lines serving the central city area. Lavender Heights, Sacramento's gay and lesbian district, is centrally located on K Street and 20th Street; the area owes its name to the high number of gay-owned businesses residing there.

Community resources for the LGBT community in the area include the Sacramento LGBT Community Center and the Lavender Library. Most of the gay bars in Sacramento are located in the Lavender Heights area. Hate crimes and gay bashing have been an issue since the early 1990s in the area. A wave of "religious refugees" including "Slavic evangelicals" has added to the tensions, many were drawn to immigrate by Sacramento evangelical churches who sponsored them including the Assemblies of God Capital Christian Center. In September 2009 a security guard hired by several gay nightclubs in Lavender Heights was killed by an accidental hit and run in an accident; the area is home to many of the city's music and arts festivals, including the Second Saturday Block Party from May to September.

Before settlement the Pocket-Greenhaven area was a riparian forest with woods of deciduous broadleafs growing beside the river and streams in the bend. The center of the bend is a few feet lower than sea level, drainage was all toward the swampy, tule-filled middle; the bend is 6.8 square miles, has fertile alluvium soil, contains a clay pit, now known as Greenhaven Lake. Before Europeans came, the Maidu Native American Indian tribe most inhabited the bend in the summer months when they could fish and hunt. Longtime residents say the bend contains a number of mounds, suggesting that the Maidu buried their dead here. John Sutter and his crew passed by the Pocket-Greenhaven area on their way to establish New Helvetia and Sutter's Fort. After the Gold Rush and former miners began to inhabit the bend. Several Portuguese families were the first settlers to the area, they raised cattle and chickens and grew wheat and barley in the fertile soil and engaged in dairying. For the most part, early white settlers did not buy land in the bend because it was considered swamp land.
The majority of the inhabitants found in the area before its development were Portuguese immigrants from a group of islands called the Azores as well as Chinese. This was a sparsely populated farming area until the mid-20th century when developers had a vision for this river community. Most were farmers who drained their farmland and produced lettuce, grain, potatoes, sugar beets, spinach and raised chickens and cows, they had pear and orange orchards and grew hay to be pressed for sale. These farmers were subsistence farmers,the crops were grown for their family's survival. Crops were sold to stores in downtown Sacramento and to miners during the Comstock Lode. Other economic activity by the Portuguese included a gasoline service station owned by Frank Enos; the Portuguese created their own schools, known as Upper and Lower Lisbon Schools, so that their children could receive an education and at the same time stay close to their cultural roots. Levees along the Sacramento River were maintained by the Portuguese.
One major flood, the Edwards levee break in 1904 occurred. Ferries were available to transport people to the town of Freeport and across the river to West Sacramento; some rides were free. Within the bend, the Portuguese led their way of life, they celebrated the Holy Ghost festas annually, attended their community church, St. Mary's, every Sunday, displayed a communal affection for a landscape that reminded them of their homeland. According to Mary Tash and her daughter Lucille Carter, in the old days people would leave their farming equipment on the comers of their parcels of land so that others could use the equipment, it was a community of trust and helping others through difficult times, less apparent in today's society. The Pocket-Greenhaven area had a bric
