COMMUNITY

The people who live and work in the City of Rocklin are the heart of the community and have built a special place for residents and visitors. Rocklin is a preferred location for business and living due to its convenient location, excellent schools, diverse mix of housing, abundant parks and recreational opportunities, and the highest commitment to public safety. Rocklin was recently named as one of top 100 Cities to live in America by “Money Magazine”, and was named the best place in Placer County to raise a family by Niche.com. Rocklin’s outstanding educational systems includes Rocklin Unified, one of the top-ranked unified school districts in the state, as well as Sierra College, ranked first in Northern California for transfers to UC and CSU universities and William Jessup University, a fast-growing private, 4-year university.

Due to Rocklin’s low crime rates and top-notch public safety professionals, Rocklin is one of the top 20 safest cities in California.  Rocklin also has a flourishing park system, with a park located within a half mile of nearly every resident in the City. Public and private development is creating an environment that supports vibrant entertainment, commercial activity, and residential options.  Business attractions in the City feature large retailers like Bass Pro Shops, farm-to-fork restaurants including the Chef’s Table, and award winning breweries such as Moksa Brewing Co.    

The City of Rocklin is located in South Placer County at the intersection of Interstate 80 and State Highway 65, and is characterized by rolling hill terrain with 360-degree panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the northeast and to the Sutter-Butte mountain range in the West.  With an estimated population of 70,000 people, Rocklin is one of the fastest growing cities in California, with approximately 65% of its growth since 2000. Rocklin was first recognized as a destination along the transcontinental railroad in 1864, about the same time granite mining began. The City was incorporated in 1863 during the heyday of railroad and granite mining activity. By 1910, 22 quarries operated in Rocklin, and in 1912, nearly 2,000 train carloads of granite were sent out of town to become part of the state capitol building and buildings in san Francisco.
