On Tuesday, the city council will vote on whether to give that designation to a one-and-a-half-mile section of the Stockton Boulevard corridor. Councilmember Kevin McCarty is introducing the resolution. McCarty says he's been working with the local Vietnamese community to develop a cultural and commercial district.   

"They're very excited about this. This is the 35year anniversary of the fall of Saigon and the first of (immigrants) coming to America including Sacramento. And we've been talking of course to the non-Vietnamese merchants and they think more efforts to draw attention on Stockton Boulevard is certainly a positive thing."  
McCarty says creating a "Little Saigon" on Stockton Boulevard from Riza Avenue to Fruitridge Road…would contribute to the economic vibrancy of the neighborhood. He says another half-mile section of the roadway outside the city limits is expected to be approved February 9th by Sacramento County supervisors.

San Jose, San Francisco and three other California cities have also designated neighborhoods as "Little Saigon".
