Jan. 12 Council Meeting Recap
Business Support Extended, Pernu Park Phase II Opening Soon
Extension of Business Support Program and Local Emergency
The Rocklin City Council unanimously approved the extension of the City’s business support program, initially established in May of 2020 in response to COVID-19. The program provides assistance to local businesses during the health crisis by suspending restrictions on promotional signs, expanding outdoor dining allowances for restaurants, establishing flexibility on late payment of business license taxes, waiving fire safety inspection fees, and more.
The business support program will remain active for at least 30 days after the expiration of the local emergency declaration. It can be extended further by Council, if decided.
City Council also extended the local emergency declaration related to COVID-19, which must be reviewed at 60-day intervals.

Pernu Park Phase II will be open to the public as soon as all documentation is appropriately recorded with Placer County. A virtual grand opening and tour will be hosted with more details coming soon.
