Capitol Area Committee (CAC)

The Capitol Area Committee was formed in 1977 to advise the director of the Department of General Services (DGS) about issues affecting the Capitol Area Plan per Government Code sections 8164.1 – 8164.3.

It is the purpose of the committee to independently review DGS’ reports to the Legislature and to counsel and advise DGS in the carrying out of its responsibilities related to the Capitol Area Plan.

The Capitol Area Plan was established for the orderly development of the state’s facilities in the metropolitan area of Sacramento. It serves as the master plan for development of state-owned land within the Capitol Area.  DGS is assigned responsibility for carrying out development within the Plan Area in accordance with the Capitol Area Plan.

The committee may submit separate comments on DGS’ reports on the Capitol Area Plan to the Legislature. The committee involves a broad cross-section of interested citizens in the form of an advisory body. The advisory body serves without compensation.
