By next July, drivers headed north on Highway 99 could have a better view at the southern end of Elk Grove.
A dilapidated wall along East Stockton Boulevard, made up of sheet metal, garage doors and plywood, could be covered by a masonry or concrete wall built on city property. The Elk Grove City Council is scheduled to discuss the project, which could cost $1.45 million, at its meeting Wednesday night.
The council will meet at 6 p.m. at 8400 Laguna Palms Way.
The sound wall project would cover up the existing wall, and would also make the sidewalk in the area meet current accessibility laws, according to a staff report.
The council is also scheduled to discuss the Southeast Policy Area, the only remaining part of the city that has no current plan or blueprint for the future.
At Wednesday's meeting, the council is scheduled to discuss the level of detail at which the city should map out the area. Those plans could cost the city anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million, according to a staff report. Development fees could recoup that money over time, the staff report states.
The Southeast Policy Area is roughly located west of Highway 99, north of Kammerer Road, east of Bruceville Road or Big Horn Boulevard, and south of Poppy Ridge Road. See the attached map at right.
