  • Sewer Fee Credits

The City of West Sacramento can assign credits to significantly reduce the regional sewer treatment connection fees for businesses and development in specific areas of the City. Eligible businesses include restaurants, public food-serving businesses and new development of any type located in the City's emerging riverfront and business district areas.  These areas include the Bridge District near Raley Field, the Washington Square neighborhood near the I Street Bridge, and new Burgers and Brew restaurant, the Central Business District near City Hall, and the Pioneer Bluff Transition Area between the Capital City Freeway and the Barge Canal.

  • Port of West Sacramento Foreign Trade Zone #143
    West Sacramento is part of a General Purpose Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) associated with the Port of West Sacramento. Companies in the FTZ may admit foreign and domestic merchandise into the zone for storage, exhibition, assembly, manufacture and processing while deferring payment of customs duties and federal excise taxes until merchandise is transferred from the foreign trade zone. Call (916) 617-4535 for more information about the FTZ.

  • Recycling Market Development Zone
    The City is part of the Sacramento Regional Recycling Market Development Zone (RMDZ). By providing incentives to businesses that use secondary material from the waste stream as feedstock, recycling-based manufacturers are eligible to apply for technical, marketing and financial assistance including low interest loans. Call us at (916) 617-4535 for more information about the RMDZ.
