May 14 Rocklin City Council Recap


Proclamation Recognizing National Police Week

Mayor Janda Presented Rocklin Police Chief Rustin Banks with a proclamation recognizing May 12-18 as National Police Week and May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day.

“We are thankful to our Rocklin City Council and our Rocklin community for being so supportive of their local law enforcement,” Chief Banks explained. “We lost Officer Redding in 2005 and this week is a time to make sure his memory stays alive. We still keep in good contact with his family who have moved out of state at this time but tell us they miss Rocklin dearly.”

Proclamation Recognizing Lyme Disease Awareness Month

City Council presented a proclamation to Melissa Moya, founder of the Lyme Fight Foundation, recognizing May 2024 as Lyme Disease Awareness Month. The Lyme Fight Foundation works to establish a strong support system for those suffering from Lyme disease, ensure that the community is aware of the dangers and impacts Lyme disease presents, and to spark discussions on how to avoid and treat it as well.

“I am also a Lyme disease patient and it took three years to get a diagnosis,” Moya told City Council. “I am on my fourth year of treatment, so it is something that is very near and dear to myself and my family. It is important that we bring awareness, we help others to stay safe and to help patients get treatment and have our community strive for better health access for patient care and testing.”

Various Roadway and Pedestrian Improvements underway

City Engineer Hunter Young presented an item City Council detailing four roadway and pedestrian improvement projects that have been put out to bid.

The first project will take place at the open space on Blue Oaks Blvd. A traffic signal and crosswalk will be installed to deter jaywalking alongside the removal of 24 trees to meet legal visibility requirements. 

The second project is on Sierra College Blvd. from Scribner Way to Dominguez Road. Pavement widening will be installed to make more room for a third southbound travel-way. A new sidewalk will also be installed contiguous with Lighthouse Church.

The third location is on Crest Drive at Valley View Elementary school. Flashing beacons and high visibility crosswalk markings will be installed to curb confusion regarding the current crosswalk. In addition, ADA curb ramps will also be installed.

School zone signage and pavement markings will be added to Topaz Avenue to meet current safety standards in Rocklin.
