The City of Citrus Heights was incorporated on January 1, 1997. Although the City is relatively young, the Citrus Heights area has a deep-rooted history dating back to the late 1800’s and the Gold Rush days. Citrus Heights, with a population of 88,115 (Department of Finance) is a unique established community in Sacramento County. Conveniently located between downtown Sacramento and Roseville, Citrus Heights is an easy commute to nearly all major employment zones in greater Sacramento, including Rancho Cordova, Folsom, Natomas, and South Placer County.
The City has established itself as an important suburb in the Sacramento region with its solid base of small businesses, retail chains, and food service establishments. With an ongoing commitment to providing high-quality, economical, responsive services to the local community, the City is well-positioned for future commercial redevelopment, neighborhood enhancements, and positive changes.
Significant events include construction of a new Citrus Heights Community Center, implementation of the City’s own Police Department, projects utilizing Redevelopment funding along Sayonara Drive, adoption of a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan in 2011 and various streetscape and infrastructure improvements.
