|Even Ron Burgundy knows - stay classy Elk Grove.|
Have you every traveled along State Highway 101 in Marin County?
If you have driven along 101 through Marin County chances are you noticed something different, or more specifically there was something missing - no billboards are allowed along that stretch of state highway.
Have you ever driven along State Highway 99 in Sacramento or any other community along 99? No doubt you have noticed the gigantic billboards that dot this already scenically challenged route.
Obviously, Elk Grove can never be compared to tony Marin County - but hey, lets have some pride in our city and at least differentiate ourselves and try to maintain a scoach of class and dignity. On the other hand we could give in, throw in the towel and be like every other city along 99.
So as the zoning ordinance to permit off-site billboards works its way towards a possible review later this month, we hope the city council members ask themselves the following question - do they want Elk Grove to preserve a touch of class along an otherwise visually blighted highway or do you want to give into crass commercialization and visual blight that seemingly dots every city along the highway.
Do they want Elk Grove to have a measure of class or just be crass. As Ron Burgundy might implore, "You stay classy Elk Grove."
