Two great opportunities to provide your input
At first glance, the City of Roseville's Town Square Project still looks like a pre-construction site. At first glance, the project still looks like a pre-construction site. A closer look, however, reveals all of the clay, PVC and flexible pipe extending out of the ground.
The Town Square project is designed to provide a destination area downtown where the community can gather for a variety of events.
The now-exposed pipe infrastructure will provide water or sewer service to the fountains and restrooms, natural gas to the fire pit, and power to the amenities.
Workers are reconfiguring Grant Street to extend the Town Square space and provide diagonal parking. Grading for soil compaction has set the stage for work to begin on the project’s foundations and hardscape improvements.
Progress is being made, and the goal is to complete construction in late spring. But the work doesn’t end then.
The most important part of the post-construction process is community input. The city needs to know what its residents, business owners and visitors would like the Town Square to provide.
We have some great ideas already but your input is critical now and in the future. It is your Downtown. So please send us your ideas with this form. This is a great opportunity to be part of the process.
Downtown Bridges Project
Your input is also extremely valuable as we consider two team's designs for the Downtown Bridges Project. The project will include a paved bike trail, two new pedestrian bridges and re-use of the existing Rube Nelson "Icehouse" Bridge across Dry Creek. The bridges will connect Downtown Roseville to Royer Park creating a pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment.
A public workshop will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Nov. 29, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Tower Theater, 421 Vernon St. The design teams will present their concepts and answer your questions. You can also see the designs and offer your comments online through Dec. 6.

Utility Payment Drop Box
There is a new utility payment drop box in the Downtown Roseville. The new location allows you to drop off payments from your vehicle. The box is in the parking lot next to 316 Vernon St., directly across the street from the Civic Center.
It will remain at this location during the town square construction period. You can see a map of the two locations here.
