Citrus Heights This Week: what’s happening around town (May 11-17)


Updated May 12, 7:27 a.m.–
Some highlights of local events going on around town this week include a free camp for kids, a health event for seniors, several police-related events, and two public hearings at the city council meeting.

Wednesday: a “Citizen Police Academy” graduation will be held a the Citrus Heights Community Center for those successfully completing a 10-week, 30-hour course offered by the City’s police department. Although the graduation is not open to the public, courses are offered twice a year, with the intent of giving citizens who live or work in Citrus Heights an opportunity to learn more about the justice system, criminal investigations and the responsibilities of a police officer, according to an Academy application form.

On Thursday night, the City Council meeting will be held for the first time in the Community Center, in anticipation of demolition of the old city hall. Council members will be holding public hearings on both a request by Stones Casino to revise the City’s electronic sign prohibitions and a request by Smart & Final to allow sales of alcoholic beverages once its new store opens at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Madison Avenue. Council members will also consider approving several items related to various pedestrian and roadway projects around the city.
