The City of Rocklin via the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency (PCTPA) is providing opportunities for your input on whether the existing transit system is meeting your needs.
Each year, usually in October, the PCTPA solicits testimony on Transit Needs that may exist in Placer County including all the incorporated Cities within the County.
The Rocklin Fire Department responded to a fire on Sunday, Oct. 1 to find flames engulfing sheds and garbage cans on either side of a common fence between two homes. When the first engines arrived, the fire filled the space between the homes with flames contacting the walls and roof of each.
Aggressive, professional action from Rocklin Fire, with assistance from the Lincoln Fire Department, Roseville Fire Department and Cal Fire, kept the fire from causing major damage to either home.
The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) establishes the total number of housing units that each city and county must plan for within an eight-year planning period.
The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) Regional Housing Needs Plan (RHNP), officially assigns the allocations to cities and counties in the six-county Sacramento region. The current RHNP covers the planning period from January 1, 2013 to October 31, 2021. The allocation is based on the SACOG region’s projected housing needs over the planning period.
The state-mandated RHNA process (Government Code Sections 65580 et seq.) requires SACOG to develop a methodology that determines how to divide and allocate an overall allocation that the region receives from the state. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) determined that the total regional housing need in the SACOG area for this planning period is 104,970 housing units. The RHNA methodology distributed these units to each city and county within El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties, including the Tahoe Basin of El Dorado and Placer counties.
