City will also recognize the 100th Anniversary of Elk Grove Citizen


Tomorrow night's Elk Grove City Council meeting should prove to be quick as the council will hear only two planning items and an update on the civic center.

Of the two planning items, one will consider a rezone of several lots located near the Sheldon Rd. and Hwy. 99 interchange. The rezone will change the lots from low and medium density housing to commercial and high density housing.

In the past, city council agenda were often packed with planning items and the meetings turned into marathon events. With the real estate meltdown and collapse of construction, Wednesday's agenda might be an indication of the recessionary woes.

The council will also present the Elk Grove Citizen, the official newspaper of record for the City of Elk Grove, with a certificate of appreciation. 2009 marks the 100th year of continuous publication of the Citizen.

Actually, the agenda is light by design. The City Council will be providing direction to staff regarding the types of amenities that it would like to see located at the Civic Center site. Instead of scheduling a special workshop for Council deliberation, this agenda item is "the main event" for tonight's meeting.
