Tracy, California

such as Legacy Field, such as our downtown district having that partnership with our downtown merchants, having concerts downtown, a commitment to a new Aquatic Center. Not only do people want to attempt to work closer to home, they want to play here. They don’t want to have to go over the hill to find things to do. That’s what the city of Tracy is trying to provide. Even during the recession, there was a commitment to continuing our special events because our leadership, at that time, knew how much the community appreciated that, and needed that, during that difficult time. So, our concerts in the park remained; our arts and recreation programs remained. We have a beautiful interdisciplinary arts center in our downtown area at the Grand Theater, which is considered our crown jewel. We have a lot of performances, gallery exhibitions, and arts programs going on there seven days a week. We’re just trying to provide it all here in the community.” “We’re kind of a competitive community,” Carrera says, in conclusion. We’re showing up. Tracy was a small, rural, ag-and-railroad town and we will always have respect for our roots. But we are growing as the community is growing. When we go to trade shows, they know where Tracy is. So, Tracy’s on the map and we’re proud of it.” PREFERRED VENDORS n Sutter Tracy Community Hospital Sutter Tracy Community Hospital is the area’s only full service, acute care hospital serving more than 100,000 people in the Tri-Central Valley region.
