We Are Roseville - September 14, 2021


September 14, 2021

Sgt Gee Memorial

Memorial Service for Sergeant Nicole Gee, USMC

The family of Sgt. Nicole Gee, USMC will be holding a public memorial service for her at 11 a.m., Saturday, September 18 at Bayside Church Adventure Campus in Roseville.

Sgt. Gee lost her life, along with 12 other U.S. service members, in the bombing attack at the Kabul airport on August 26. Gee was a 2016 Oakmont High School graduate who enlisted in the Marines a year after she graduated. Her husband, Jarod Gee, is also an Oakmont graduate and Marine.

We are anticipating heavy traffic along Stanford Ranch Road and Galleria Blvd. from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. that day. Motorists should expect delays in the area.

Drought - two days a week watering

Watering days shift to two days per week

Watering days have shifted from three days to two days per week to manage ongoing drought conditions. The new schedule lasts until October 31.

Residential customers can water on Mondays and Fridays. Commercial customers can water on Mondays and Thursdays. Customers using drip irrigation are not subject to watering days.

Learn more and view helpful irrigation tips.

Parks water smart

Learn how we're doing our part to save water in our parks and landscaping

We continue to invest in systems that are water smart, like using recycled water and converting areas of "passive" turf in parks to water wise landscapes.

As a water customer, we are required to meet the same level of reductions as businesses and residents. To meet the reduction goal, priority is being given to sports fields and trees followed by landscaping and "usable" park turf.

Learn more about how our parks are being water smart.

The OptumServe COVID-19 testing site in Roseville has increased their operation to 12 hours a day to meet growing demand. The testing site is located at the Maidu Activity Center, 1960 Johnson Ranch Drive.

Police body cameras

Roseville Police officers begin using body worn cameras

In another positive step in strengthening our relationship with those we serve; the City of Roseville Police Department has implemented a new body worn camera program. 

In July 2021, the Roseville City Council approved a five-year contract for just over $750,000 with LensLock, a company specializing in body camera programs. The contract will provide Roseville PD with 150 body cameras, enough for every Roseville Police officer.

Affordable housing

Roseville provides streamlined building approvals to help ease housing shortage

A new streamlined building approval process allows for qualifying affordable housing projects to be expedited directly to building permit and engineering permit review.

Qualifying projects are those that meet the City’s recently adopted Objective Design Standards for high-quality development. This allows projects to be built more quickly and with fewer permitting fees to help ease the housing shortage and benefit the local economy.
