With each passing day, the grand illusion fabricated by the carnival barkers at Elk Grove City Hall and the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce is being shattered. As the city has grown, so have the problems associated with the unchecked expansion.

Given our geographic location, for better or worse the portion of Elk Grove north of Elk Grove Boulevard will meld into a continuation of South Sacramento. Within five years expect to see more and more houses in this portion of Elk Grove to have protective bars covering windows.
