What the heck is going on in Elk Grove?

First, a 75 year old man is found stabbed to death. The crime occurred in the morning.

Then this, a shooting in the late afternoon.

Is Elk Grove becoming an extension of South Sacramento?

Is this increase in crime due to all the Section 8 rentals and low income apartments?

The City Council recently rezoned land for 3,600 units of High Density Low and Very Low Income housing project units.

A little over 2,000 will be in the new SEPA Meridian planning area (south of Madeira, north of the new mall area.

There will be 200 - 300 units to the west of Winco.

The more single family homes the more low income and very low income apartment projects that need to be built.

Keep rubber stamping housing developments and the low income will follow.

Build it and they will come

Drought, just keep building, suck the ground water tables dry and create future sinkholes.

Elk Grove Thriving!

Elk Grove the New south Sacramento?

Here is a name suggestion for the SEPA area, why not call it Cabrini Green Elk Grove.

Bottom line is this....who with any means will want to make EG his/her home when most likely they don't work here and EG has little to no amenities for an upper class spender? The foothill communities, East Sac, Davis, ect...are the target areas for the well off. EG in the next generation becomes the dumping grounds for those who have no choices. We are the poster child for incredibly poor planned super-subdivisions of the 21st century.
