Elk Grove Week at a Glance

Week of February 17, 2020

Let’s Consider the Future of Employment Centers and the Kammerer Road Corridor

The City is taking a second look at the Kammerer Road corridor and considering a new vision that considers employment trends and today’s business site selection priorities. Is there a place for mixed use development and what would it look like? How would development integrate with Kammerer Road and its role as a regional connector? These and other questions will be explored as part of a public workshop next Tuesday, February 25 at the Captain’s Quarters in the Elk Grove Aquatics Center (9701 Big Horn Blvd.) at 6 p.m. This first meeting will be an introduction to the project and general discussion. We invite and encourage the community to join the conversation. More information about the project is available on the Strategic Planning section of the city’s website.
