The City of Roseville is leading a visioning project to help guide the community into the future. The outcomes will reflect the values and aspirations of the people who live and work in Roseville today.
What’s driving this project?
Community demographics have changed. Consistent with trends seen across the metro, Roseville is growing and is becoming more diverse with an 8% increase in communities of color from 2010 to 2020. There are also a substantial number of older adults, families with children, people with lower income, immigrant families, and people living with disabilities residing living within the city.
The global pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we live, work, and play. COVID-19 has forever altered how we live. Things like work from home, delivery of consumer goods, social distancing, and changes in the ways we use public spaces have become the next normal.
The project began in August 2022 and is anticipated to conclude by the end of December 2023. Community input was collected during the first phase of the project from fall 2022 through spring 2023. The second phase of the project is underway now and we will collect community input throughout the summer 2023.
Community input was reviewed and grouped into themes to identify the common trends across multiple responses. The following is a summary of those themes. As you review, think about your vision for the future of Roseville and add your comments in the comment box.
