In October, Mayor Susan Rohan gave her annual State of the City address. In her speech, she highlighted many of the reasons Roseville is a great place to live and work. She mentioned several recent rankings including Roseville being named the number one place in California to raise a family. The city was also named one of the top five cities for millennials to buy homes, and was ranked 24th of the best cities to retire. In addition to the city’s lifestyle appeal, Mayor Rohan spoke about the many planned opportunities on the horizon. From corporate growth to innovative parks and event spaces, it’s obvious there is much to be excited about for Roseville residents. With that in mind, here are three city development projects to watch in 2018.
1. Hewlett Packard’s former site
This area that was once owned by Hewlett Packard is undergoing a major transformation, and will feature new homes in a variety of price ranges along with corporate job center opportunities. In addition to live/work options, the area will also include a new concept in outdoor recreation called Innovation Park that will include activities such as an outdoor dining area, half court basketball, bocce ball and more.
Activity around the Top Golf site has been increasing. The Planning Commission recently approved the addition of a Peet’s Coffee, and are in discussions with other possible future restaurants. Hotel construction is also underway at the site.
3. The Grounds
$8 million in renovations are have begun at what is also known as the Placer County Fairgrounds and Event Center. The project, which is led by a collaborative effort between Placer County and Placer Valley Tourism, has already seen an overhaul of existing buildings and halls, the parking lot and grounds areas. A 130,000 square foot event and sports center is also planned which will host major volleyball, wrestling, cheer, basketball and gymnastics events.
