Dear Committee Members:
We often hear that a reason people join our community is because of the
"small town atmosphere". The Rocklin Historical Society has particular
interest, and, some would say, responsibility, relative to preservation
of the heritage that contributes to our small town atmosphere.
Attached is a vision for Old Town developed from the historical
society's perspective. The vision is intended to provide a focus and
direction for the society's activities. However, we have found that
there is substantial interest on the part of the larger community in
improvement of Old Town based on a theme anchored in the community's
Clearly there is much opportunity for improvement in Old Town - it is
also imperative that the community act quickly if we are to preserve "at
risk" structures and open space. By adopting and publicizing a vision we
feel we can take advantage of the support that exists in the community.
By partnering (City of Rocklin, service organizations and commercial
interests) we can complete elements of the vision to improve old town
and encourage viable commercial development that takes advantage of
Rocklin's rich heritage.
We appreciate consideration of the elements of this vision for
incorporation in the general plan. We also invite any suggestions that
the committee or staff can make on the subject of a vision for Old Town.
President, Rocklin Historical Society
