Subject: Volunteers to assist City in Fence Removal at Sunset Whitney Recreation Area on Saturday, March 10

Who: The City of Rocklin will lead a group of community volunteers to remove unsightly fencing at the entrance of the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area, the former Rocklin Golf Club.

Where: The work is scheduled to begin at 4201 Midas Avenue, Rocklin Ca, 95677.

When: Saturday, March 10, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

What: Volunteers will need to dress for possible muddy conditions, bring gloves, and non-power tools to remove fence boards (hammer, sledgehammer, mallet, etc). City Staff will provide totes and dumpsters to deposit materials. All volunteers will be required to sign a waiver.

More Info: The City of Rocklin completed the purchase of approximately 184 acres of land in January 2018 that was previously the site of the Rocklin Golf Club. The land is still closed to the public while the city works with the community to envision future recreational uses and brings the property up to standards for public access. A public forum was held Feb. 28 to solicit feedback, with more than 300 people in attendance. The information gathered at the forum is being reviewed and a report will be made at the Parks, Recreation and Art Commission meeting scheduled for March 14 at Rocklin City Hall.
