Brief Description of Development:

The first phase of a significant expansion of the Discovery Museum Science and Space Center in Sacramento, which has been providing educational opportunities to children for over 60 years. The Powerhouse will serve over 320,000 visitors annually, providing science curriculum enrichment tailored to specific grade levels (K-12).  The Science Academies to be offered will be a unique collaboration between the Sacramento Education Office and Powerhouse.  The location, adjacent to an abandoned PG&E power station that is to be renovated as the 2nd phase of the project, is located in a severely distressed census tract.

But-For Statement:

No; the City has committed the land and existing building, along with significant financial resources.  Without the NMTC investment, there is not adequate funding available to construct this initial phase.
