Old Town Special Planning Area Update

Ascent is assisting the City of Elk Grove with the update of the Old Town Special Planning Area (SPA) document, addressing a historic commercial district along a 1-mile stretch of Elk Grove Boulevard. Old Town Elk Grove dates back to the mid-1800s, with over 40 buildings contributing to a historic commercial district listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The update helps to establish the vision and development and design standards to support the creation of a cohesive main street environment serving the Elk Grove community. The effort includes an extensive stakeholder engagement program to comprehensively update the vision, guiding principles, development regulations, and design criteria for the area, including updated recommendations for activation of Elk Grove Boulevard, site and architectural design, streetscape design, and branding. The update concludes with City-led implementation priorities to facilitate the improvement of the district.
