City of Rocklin Increases Transparency in Planning Process

In an effort that began in early 2015, the City of Rocklin has continued to investigate methods to increase transparency and expedite public notification in the planning process.

The City already provides more than twice the amount of public notification required by the State of California, and now the City has added an additional tool for the public to see development applications as quickly as possible.

Managed Grazing Returns to Rocklin

Herds of goats and sheep can be found once again this year grazing in the open space areas of Rocklin. Grazing is a cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way to manage vegetation and help prevent wildfires. 

The City of Rocklin requires property owners to perform vegetation control on vacant parcels and open space areas. Grazing is a long-recognized, sound vegetation management practice that costs significantly less than most other methods.
