Anyone who has lived in these areas; are these flat lands as opposed to the foothills? How is the climate any snow? How is the drive on the 20 or 49 any weather related closures during the year ? What are some major businesses in the area? Does one have to go to Auburn or Grass Valley for major stores? How is crime rate in either city?

Meadow Vista is not flat. It is a very nice community which we adored. Nice folks. I grew up there and we lived there about 8 years ago for one year while trying to sell our home.

Penn Valley looks flatter to me. It's much cheaper, to rent or buy than M.V. Property Taxes are lower in Nevada County than in Placer where Meadow Vista is. The schools in Meadow Vista, Weimar (for the later years) and Colfax High School are just alright. I go to Penn Valley sometimes, the community is very friendly and get a great feel from the folks in the community. Nice folks

You are well into the foothills at that point for both locations. Pretty long commute to Sacramento from both too.

South of Highway 50 in the unincorporated Sacramento County area there is flat, generally rural, agricultural residential zoned properties with acreage. There is a ton of ag/farmland outside Sac to the west, north, and south of the Sac metro area that is completely flat, with large acre parcels.The areas with foothills are all to the East of Sacramento, everywhere else will have flat farm/ag/rural residential(or once was). I believe I mentioned this in your previous thread.

I'd say:
1) south of 50, but actually south of Elk Grove, like Wilton & Galt areas
2) west of Sacramento toward & past Davis
3) out near & beyond Lincoln, Wheatland, Yuba City
4) east of Sacramento/EG on Grant Line, probably where Grantline crosses 16, it starts getting hilly

and then there is always Rio Linda
