Excerpt:

Rancho Cordova Economic Development Director Curt Haven described the holdout as the county “taking the area as collateral.” The Rancho Cordova Incorporation Committee didn’t have much say over the boundaries, Haven says. “It was just a group of volunteers up against a county with all its lawyers. Now that we are a city with our own bank of attorneys, it was easier to be heard,” he says.
