Elk Grove Week at a Glance
Week of February 3, 2020
Elk Grove receives almost $5 million in federal funds every five years to help serve low- and moderate-income residents. To administer these funds, City staff is guided by a 5-year planning document. The guide for the next 5 years, the 2020-2025 Consolidated Plan, is now under development.
Development of the Consolidated Plan will serve as a community-wide dialog to identify housing and community development priorities. Share your input by attending one of two public workshops on Tuesday, February 4 at 2 p.m. or 6 p.m. at the City of Elk Grove Council Chambers, 8400 Laguna Palms Way. You can also provide your input online by completing a brief survey at elkgrovecity.org/cdbg.
To request a hard copy of the survey, translation services, or special assistance, call 916-478-2254 or email email@example.com.
Catch a “Green Wave” on Major East-West Boulevards
Motorists travelling across Elk Grove will have the chance to catch a “green wave” starting this week. The City is implementing significant timing changes for all traffic signals along Elk Grove Boulevard and Laguna Boulevard/Bond Road between Bruceville Road and Elk Grove-Florin Road. These changes are intended to reduce travel times and improve travel time reliability along these major east-west thoroughfares. The signals will be re-timed so that vehicles traveling east or west at the posted speed limit will have a greater probability of getting green lights.
These changes are part of a two-phase plan to address traffic congestion in the city. For questions or comments about the new signal coordination plans, please contact Public Works at 916-478-2256. For more information or to review the Traffic Congestion Management Plan please visit the Traffic Engineering page at www.elkgrovecity.org.
Contribute to a Community Mobility Resiliency Plan
The City is seeking community input on proposed strategies to adapts to climate-related impacts related to flooding, extreme heat and the reduction in gas and sales tax revenues. A Community Mobility Resiliency Plan is in the process of being developed to respond and adapt to these anticipated impacts on the transportation system. Join the city for a workshop on Thursday, February 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Center at District56 (8230 Civic Center Drive) to help identify possible strategies and solutions. More information about this effort can be found on the city’s website at www.elkgrovecity.org/mobilityresilience.
