General Overview of Elk Grove, California

Elk Grove is located in Sacramento County, California and is considered to be a city. It is quite close to the actual City of Sacramento, which is only 15.6 miles away. In addition, it’s included in the Sacramento–Arden-Arcade–Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area.


The population of Elk Grove is 160,688. This is virtually double the population in the city in 2000, when it was 81,684.


Its rapid population explosion at one point gave it the distinction of being named the fastest growing city in the United States between July 2004 to July 2005.


It’s total area is 42.239 square miles, giving it a population density of 3,600 per square mile. This is not that high when one considers how much the population has expanded in the past 15 years.


The history of Elk Grove is extensive. In 1808, a Spanish explorer by the name of Gabriel Moraga traveled to the area, deciding to call it “Sacramento Valley.” “Sacramento” was a reference to the Holy Sacrament in Spanish.


The entire area slowly grew in popularity, especially after the California Gold Rush in the middle of the 19th century. By 1850, Elk Grove was officially founded. It was a travel stop by those coming from either Sacramento or San Francisco.


Some of the first places in Elk Grove were the Elk Grove Hotel and Stage Stop, which were run by James Hall.


Eventually, 18 years later in 1868, the Central Pacific Railroad built tracks a mile from Elk Grove.


Throughout the next hundred years, Elk Grove continued to be a small, rural farming town. But by the end of the 1980s, it began to see a sudden change in its character. It was now becoming a suburban area with various development projects, namely for those looking to get out of Sacramento and even San Francisco.


This expansion hit its apex in the mid-2000s. On July 1st, 2000, it was officially incorporated as the City of Elk Grove.


The median age in the city is 34. This is fairly average, as the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years and the national median age is 37.2 years.


With the expansion in the population in Elk Grove, the median age is slowly skewing younger compared to previous decades.


The median household income in Elk Grove is $70,013. This is above-average but is not that wealthy in comparison to some of the other richer cities in California. Still though, it’s up nearly $10,000 since 2000, when it was $60,661.


The State of California’s median household income is $58,328 and the national average is $53,046.


Elk Grove’s crime rate index is 33, meaning that it’s safer than only 33% of the cities in the United States. This is better than some other areas in Sacramento County like Vineyard, but it’s still not that safe.


There is a 1 in 339 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 47 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


In the State of California, there is a 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and a 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


Time will tell how the crime rate changes as  the population continues to rise in Elk Grove.


First Security understands the security needs of Elk Grove and Sacramento County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.
