The Cosumnes Community Services District has approved the construction of Fire Station 77 in the Laguna Ridge area of Elk Grove. The new station will serve the southern portion of Elk Grove and the new housing areas south of Whitelock Parkway to Kammerer Road. The new station will also serve the SkyRiver Casino that is expected to open in late 2022.
The station will be located at 8350 Poppy Ridge Road. Construction is expected to start in early 2022 with completion in late 2023. Once Station 77 comes online it will help reduce response times for the Cosumnes Fire Department
From the CCSD Staff Report:
The project site is an approximately 3.35-acre undeveloped property located on the south
side of Poppy Ridge Road, between Big Horn Boulevard and Wagner Way. The Project
includes the construction of a new fire station and prefabricated metal storage building,
approximately 9,000 square feet (sf) and 3,300 sf in size, respectively, along with site
improvements such as paving, utilities, and landscaping. The proposed project will develop
approximately 1.62 acres of the total 3.35 acres of the site.
