We Are Roseville - October 19, 2021


October 19, 2021


Roseville residents have a chance to Shape Roseville’s Future through redistricting process 

Every 10 years, the City of Roseville’s Independent Redistricting Commission comprising community members must re-establish the boundaries for the five City Council districts based on the new census data.

“You have a chance to shape Roseville’s future by participating in this process,” said Paul Frank, Independent Redistricting Commission Chair. “Come to one of our public meetings or send us your maps and ideas. All of your input is important to the Commission as it determines our City Council district boundaries for the next 10 years.”

The online mapping tool that can be used to submit draft maps will be available October 26.

Find out more about the redistricting timeline and public meeting schedule here.

Going to Folsom

Water Treatment Plant celebrates 50 years

In August 1971, the Barton Road Water Treatment Plant was officially dedicated to the Roseville community. It started treating, filtering and pumping clean drinking water to a community that historically relied on groundwater wells and ditched water for drinking water.

The impetus for the treatment plant came when in 1967, Roseville established a 40-year agreement with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to obtain surface water supplies from Folsom Lake. As plans were underway to obtain the new water supply, the community coined “Going to Folsom.”
