Johnson-Springview Splash Pad Contract Awarded to PBM Construction

Johnson Springview Park Splash Pad Rendering

The Johnson-Springview Park splash pad and new pavilions took a major step toward reality on Tuesday night when City Council awarded the construction contract to PBM Construction, Inc.

PBM Construction provided the lowest bid, which was well below the combined budget for the splash pad and pavilions. Construction is scheduled to begin this week and is anticipated to be complete by summer, just in time to enjoy the waterworks!

Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance

In 2019, the State of California enacted new Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) regulations in an effort to encourage the construction of potential affordable housing. To comply with the new State standards and enact local control where possible, the City Council approved an updated ADU ordinance at the Feb. 25 meeting.

An ADU is an attached or detached residential dwelling unit that provides complete, independent living facilities for one or more persons, located on a lot with a primary residence.

Rocklin asserted local control in the ordinance through various means, including not allowing ADUs to be rented for fewer than 30 consecutive calendar days and requiring units meet the same architectural style as the existing property. For more information, the full ordinance can be found here.

City Council also discussed how the City could use ADUs to help meet State Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) requirements in the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update. Council directed staff to estimate that ADUs will make up 5% of the total RHNA. This is equivalent to construction of 283 ADUs in Rocklin during the next Housing Element cycle.
