In addition to those residents who donate their time to serve on the City’s commissions and boards, Roseville also relies on volunteers to help meet a variety of needs and augment the work of City staff. A number of opportunities exist throughout the community that offer residents ways to get involved. The City invests in supervision and training to help volunteers have successful experiences and was recently named the country’s first Service Enterprise city by Points of Light. In order to continue improving in the area of volunteerism, the city is looking for feedback from residents on a variety of topics.

Redevelopment In Roseville
Without much vacant land available in our built-out community, revitalization of Roseville is primarily done through reinvestment and redevelopment. Redevelopment can take many forms from a simple remodeling to a complete transformation of a property. Redevelopment is often centered on physical improvements such as new buildings or amenities, but redevelopment can also be as simple as changing a use on the site. As a first-ring suburb Roseville experiences a lot redevelopment opportunities. Many times the market drives redevelopment. (Visit http://www.cityofroseville.com/599/Current-Development for information about current developments). However, there may be redevelopment opportunities that the City can be involved in that the market does not address. We are interested in your opinion on where the City’s redevelopment efforts should be focused and what type of redevelopment opportunities should be pursued.
