Re "Lower ceiling prevails in wave of new projects" (Page A1, Aug. 14): The Bee should be commended for covering the major construction story of the last decade: the creation of multifamily mixed use housing in the downtown and midtown during the recession. The missing link is the lack of coverage regarding CADA (Capitol Area Development Authority) and its JPA partners, the State of California and the City of Sacramento.

All of the completed, or under construction projects in the article are CADA projects; development and construction that proceeded throughout the recession, the time when government agencies are essential to a recovery. Look around and you will find that major progress and economic development in our community is often the result of public private partnerships forged over time and quietly working away for public benefit.
