Rocklin

The city of Rocklin was incorporated in 1893.  It is located in California’s Gold Country, at the junction of Interstate 80 and State Highway 65, near the base of the Sierra foothills.  Encompassing 19.87 square miles, Rocklin is within close proximity to many popular tourist locations and recreational amenities including Folsom Lake (20 minutes); the State Capitol and Old Sacramento (30 minutes); and Lake Tahoe, the Pacific Ocean, and San Francisco (less than 2 hours).

With a population of approximately 58,295, Rocklin is the second largest city by population in Placer County. Rocklin has achieved national recognition for its low crime rates, excellent schools, colleges and universities, and beautiful parks.  It was listed as one of the “10 Best Towns” for families in America by Family Circle magazine (the only California city on the list), and ranked 65th of the nation’s top 100 places to live by Money magazine based on quality of schools, safe streets, low crime, recreational and cultural activity choices, charm, and economic strength (one of only four California cities to make this list). 

Rocklin prides itself on being a family-oriented community, while also embracing technology, innovation and forward-thinking government.  Now in its second year, Rocklin’s Citizen’s Academy has provided information about city operations, department functions, budgeting, and public safety to residents, business owners, and students. Participants are able to learn about the city, ask questions, and provide feedback to city employees. 

With involvement from city employees recommending new ways to conduct business and approach day-to-day operations, Rocklin recently adopted a balanced 2012-2013 budget. Additionally, through well-planned city leadership and decision making, several projects have been completed and are providing the infrastructure to enable growth and development as the economic conditions of the region begin to improve. Sierra College Interchange (at I-80 and Sierra College Boulevard) is an example of infrastructure planned and completed, now resulting in two new regional shopping areas – Rocklin Commons and Rocklin Crossings.   

Rocklin was originally famous for its granite mining. In the early 1900s, train carloads of granite were sent out to become part of the State Capitol building and other buildings in San Francisco. The city continues to embrace its rich history and traditions, while meeting the challenges and opportunities of the future.  Throughout the years and moving into the future, Rocklin will be a leader in providing excellent services, a safe community, and in maintaining a high quality of life.
