The City of Rocklin General Plan guides physical
development of the land and expresses community goals allowing
growth to meet community needs, while preserving environmental
and historical integrity.
Adoption of the first General Plan corresponded with the
population boom and expansion of business and industry that began
in 1974. Becoming popular as a place to live and do business, the
City of Rocklin updated the General Plan in 1991 to reflect the
diversifying character of the community. The most recent
comprehensive update was in October of 2012.
Notable amendments were completed in 2015 to address Urban
Levels of Flood Protection (consistent with the Central Valley
Flood Protection Act) and to incorporate the 2016 Placer County
Local Multi Hazard Mitigation Plan into the Rocklin Community
Safety Element by reference. Additionally, the City’s
Community Safety Element, as well as, the Community Safety Action
Plan and Housing Element were comprehensively updated in 2021.
