Interested to hear the details. Was the 10M platform removed?

Where is the money going to come from?

Fall from the sky?

Elk Grove is well on the way to becoming Stockton north.

In addition to the current Laguna Ridge residents, CFD 2006-1 puts all future homeowners in the city on the hook for an unlimited tax assessment for sports and recreation facilities.

CFD 2006-1:related maintenance costs associated with public parkways,
public parks, open space, landscape setbacks, bike and other paths,
landscaped medians in and adjacent to roadways, maintenance and
operation of a community center, sports (including aquatic) facilities,
cultural arts center, and water features, and maintenance of other
related facilities.

City Web site: CFD 2006-1
"The special tax will be levied in perpetuity (forever). The special tax is levied on single family lots that have a final map, and on single family units that have a building permit. The special tax is levied on multi-family units with a building permit, and on non-residential acreage with a building permit."

I need to pull out my tax bill and see if I am part of CFD 2006-1 I am not going to be very happy. What a sham! Shame on Detrick and Hume for breaking yet another promise.
