On Tuesday, July 9, the Rocklin City Council approved two resolutions related to the traffic roundabout planned at the current intersection of Rocklin Road and Pacific Street. The resolutions provided approval for needed changes to the roundabout’s design and authorized Rocklin staff to begin discussions with property owners to purchase the small amount of privately-owned surrounding land needed to build the roundabout.
The City of Rocklin recognizes July as “Parks and Recreation Month” and encourages residents to discover the power of play and adventure within the City’s expansive park system.
To get people out and exploring, the City recently launched the “Capture Rocklin” scavenger hunt photo contest, with 40 photo goals for the public to find throughout the City including “animal tracks,” a “California State Poppy,” and “Joel Parker Whitney’s Tomb.”
The City will honor the late Roy Ruhkala and the entire Ruhkala family on Sunday, July 28, at Quarry Park Adventures with a special ceremony beginning at 11:30 a.m.
The event will feature remarks from City Council and the Rocklin Historical Society, in addition to a special video presentation, and free cake and root beer floats, while supplies last.
