Community Conversation on Homelessness
Homelessness is on the rise in Elk Grove as it is in most communities in California.

Join staff from the City’s Housing and Public Services team, Elk Grove Police Department and Cosumnes CSD Fire Department to discuss and explore potential homelessness solutions that could be supported by Measure E funds.
Apply to join the Measure E Citizen’s Oversight Committee.
Maintaining Streets and Parks
Many of the City’s streets are over 25 years old and need repair and ongoing maintenance. Our community has over 100 parks and over 1,000 acres of open space, many with aging amenities in need of repair and replacement. With the recent passage of Measure E, the City and Cosumnes CSD are looking to enhance streets and parks to improve the quality of life for all residents. Join the community conversation on this topic tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28, at 6 p.m. at District56.
Elk Grove Public Works Director, Jeff Werner, Cosumnes CSD Parks and Recreation Administrator, Phillip Lewis and staff from the City and Cosumnes CSD will participate in a conversation with residents on potential street and park maintenance solutions that could be supported with Measure E funds.

Don’t Let Yard Improvements Set You Back
Before constructing a fence or accessory structure on your property, check in with Elk Grove’s Planning Department. The City’s Zoning Code provides guidelines for how and where you can build fences and sheds. The rules vary based on your zoning district and your property’s unique characteristics, but the general guidelines are as follows:
The setback for fences along street side yards (corner lots) must be 5 feet from where the sidewalk starts. The maximum height for fences is seven 7 feet. The maximum size for sheds and accessory structures is less than 120 square feet without a building permit. The setback for sheds and accessory structures must be 5 feet from the backyard property line, 12.5 from sidewalks (on corner lots), and 6 feet from other structures.
Find out the zoning code requirements for your property by calling the Planning Department at 916-478-2265. Violations may result in code enforcement action.
