CalOZ Speaker Series: Dan Kowalski (Sacramento)

On April 26, 2019, CalOZ hosted Dan Kowalski, Special Counsel to the US Secretary of the Treasury, and one of the top leaders at the federal level on opportunity zones. After touring key projects within downtown Sacramento’s opportunity zone areas, Mr. Kowalski was a featured speaker at a lunch event at the Sawyer Hotel. Mr. Kowalski provided updates on the opportunity zone program to an audience of 50+ community advocates, elected officials, investors, developers, and other OZ stakeholders. In addition, a panel of local leaders (Sacramento City Council Member Allen Warren, Alex Bhathal from RevOZ Capital, Denton Kelley from Downtown Railyard Ventures, and Julius Austin from the Sacramento Promise Zone) provided diverse perspectives on the future of opportunity zones in Sacramento.
