“Solid roots. New growth.”  is our brand. The brand highlights the City’s strong leadership and collaborative community spirit that won us cityhood, has kept us in a strong financial position despite no access to property tax and continues to be the foundation for our community’s growth today. Our new growth is evident in the over $100 million in infrastructure improvements completed, a Community Center and City Hall that was built with no debt and a new Dignity Health medical office building that will be opening in 2019, to name a few. It is our rich history of self-reliance and problem solving, but also new energy and ideas that offers families and businesses the stability and support they both seek, presenting an environment for growth.
We are excited to launch our first monthly e-newsletter with the goal of providing accurate, timely, and engaging information for residents and businesses. We hope it serves as a source of news you can grow with in Citrus Heights.
