The C. J. Evans collection primarily consists of Sacramento regional planning documents gathered by C. Jeffrey Evans during
the course of his work as a government planner. The bulk of the collection is made up of planning reports related to communities
in Sacramento County (1965-1998), with a smaller amount of planning reports for Riverside County (1989), Solano County (1973-1989),
and Yolo County (1989), plus material documenting the Natomas Community Association (1985-1995). The material in this collection
helps trace the development of the Sacramento region, and also documents the changing trends in planning and increasingly
rigorous requirements of environmental impact reports.
C. Jeffrey Evans worked as a regional planner in the Sacramento area. He graduated from Oregon State University, Corvallis,
in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree in political science, then obtained a master’s in city and regional planning from the University
of New Mexico, Albuquerque, in 1986. Evans began his planning career in the Sacramento area in 1984 working as a planning
assistant with Quad Consultants. His first local government position was with the City of Roseville as an assistant planner
in 1985. From 1985 to 1989, he worked as an assistant planner for the County of Sacramento while also serving on the Natomas
Community Association’s board of directors. From 1989 to 1998, Evans was a planner with the California Energy Commission.
As of 2011, Evans owned Evans Consulting Services LLC in Portland, Oregon.
