In an email release issued this afternoon, Elk Grove Council Member Gary Davis announced that a California state agency will locate facilities in the city.

According to Davis' announcement, Elk Grove will be the new headquarters for the California Correctional Health Care Services administrative headquarters.

"Today, our hard work has paid off. I am pleased to announce that Elk Grove has just landed their first major state agency – over 1500 jobs, Davis' press release said. "And not just any jobs. These are high wage, high quality jobs. Many of which are physicians and supportive medical positions."

According the Sacramento Business Journal, the agency will be located at the Laguna Corporate Center at 9260 Laguna Springs Drive. It also reports the agency seeks a total of 265,000 square feet which could mean the construction of three additional structures.

The Business Journal also reports that the 10 year lease is valued at $98 million and beat out another facility located at Near Interstate 5 that would have cost $103 million. The move into Elk Grove could start as early as 2012.
