In the top ten, Elgin is. But to say it is one of the largest is a bit of a reach.

Elgin has the advantage of large bounderies that will increase in population esp on the west side. In 10-15 years Elgin could be a top 5 or 7 city in population in the state but due to the recession the rapid expansion of their projected subdivisons has slowed the growth very much.
