Elk Grove to Hold Workshop, Provide Update on Long-stalled Civic Center
December 12, 2016 |
Tonight the City of Elk Grove will hold a workshop on the proposed facilities for the Elk Grove Civic Center.
The proposed multi-facility center is located in the City's Elk Grove Laguna Ridge neighborhood and is bound by Civic Center Drive on the north and Big Horn Boulevard to the west. Among the notable facilities proposed for the center are an aquatics center, Veterans hall, senior center, and a city hall.
Construction on all of the facilities stalled after the onset of the Great Recession in 2008 and have yet to resume. Tonight's meeting will focus on the Veterans hall and senior center.
Last January, the City Council directed staff to proceed with the completion of the refined Civic Center Master Plan, including Phase 1 of the project which includes an aquatic center, a senior center center and Veterans hall all of which have a $51 million price tag.
Funding is proposed to come from a variety of sources, most significantly from Mello Roos fees imposed on residents in the Poppy Ridge and Laguna Ridge neighborhoods. Future phases are dependent on funding availability.
