Future of Employment Centers on Kammerer Road

Press Release

Press Release - Elk Grove to Consider the Future of Employment Centers on the Kammerer Road Corridor

Posted: 02/19/2020

Employment trends are changing - employees and employers are seeking places where employees can live and work in communities with a vibrant, urban character; multistory, mixed use buildings with retail, office, and residential integrated both horizontally and vertically. Recent business site selection activities, such as the Amazon HQ2 project, highlight these trends.

In 2014, the City approved the Southeast Policy Area (SEPA), a strategic plan that identified a large land area for a traditional, suburban employment center.  Development would occur in multistory, single use buildings that would be supported by large parking fields.  SEPA is located along the Kammerer Road Corridor and is adjacent to the Lent Ranch planning area (the Promenade Corridor where the Mall was to be located) and the South Study Area, where development would occur in the decades to come. 

The City of Elk Grove 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. Where could mixed use development occur and what would it look like? How would development integrate with Kammerer Road and its role as a regional connector?

The City will host the first in a series of workshops on Tuesday, February 25 at 6:00 p.m. to consider the future of this important, yet undeveloped, southeast corridor. This first meeting will be an introduction to the project and general discussion. Community members are invited and encouraged to join the conversation.
