Would You Use an Elk Grove Event Center?

Company wants to build new spot for weddings, meetings.

More affordable than a hotel, but fancier than a community center.

That's how Utah company The Falls describes the event center it wants to build in Elk Grove.

The center would be located on Elk Grove Blvd between Big Horn Blvd and Laguna Springs Drive, right next to the City of Elk Grove's planned new civic center, according to the Sacramento Business Journal.

Company executives told the Business Journal they hope to appeal to budget-conscious customers who would book the facility online for weddings, quinceañeras, meetings and other events. There would be no overnight accommodations, but the buildings would boast theaters, waterfalls and game rooms. Party hosts could bring their own food or hire caterers.

The project, which hasn't yet received approval from planning authorities, could conflict with City officials have already said they want to build a hotel and conference center on the civic center site, most likely in partnership with a private company.

Any potential for conflict "will be evaluated during the planning phase," city spokesperson Christine Brainerd told Elk Grove Patch.

We're wondering whether there is a demand for this kind of event center in Elk Grove. Readers, can you see yourself renting a room at a place like this? Tell us in the comments.

I think this is an excellent idea! The Elk Grove community needs more places to hold weddings and large events. I really hope this idea becomes a reality.

I agree with Ms. Cheung that we need more options for renting nice places in Elk Grove, however let's keep the cost reasonable.

Seems like the Event Center can be the 'smaller' of the 'places to hold large gatherings'. If they are next to each other than it would feel like a choice.... not a conflict. I did NOT enjoy going to the Arco Arena when my sister graduated from an Franklin HS.... there's one use right there!

I just found out that we already have one on Bradshaw Road! Is this interesting to know that people do not know that we already have one :)
