City Kicks Off Building Safety Month

The Citrus Heights building department hosted a Thursday kick-off event in order to raise awareness to Building Safety Month, an international effort which seeks to improve building safety through education during the month of May.

In addition to the city council passing a Building Safety Month proclamation, city officials were at work educating about building safety even before the month-long event began.

An April monthly meeting of the Citrus Heights Neighborhood Area 6 featured a visit from Chief Building Official Greg Anderson who discussed the purpose of Building Safety Month, and explained the “why’s” of building codes.

New City Hall Proposal: Final Community Meeting on April 30

New City Hall Proposal: Final Community Meeting on April 30

A final community meeting to discuss the potential relocation and construction of a new city hall for Citrus Heights has been scheduled for April 30.

The meeting is the last in a series of City-hosted community discussions, following a proposal by Dignity Health last year to build a 66,000 square feet medical office building in place of the existing hall on Fountain Square Drive.

Although a final decision is not expected until July, the city council selected a preliminary “preferred design” and site for the proposal at an April 10 study session, selecting 7625 Antelope Rd. as the best location to move city hall.

CHPD Joins Crackdown on Texting while Driving

“Zero tolerance” is what the Citrus Heights Police Dept. is promising, as it joins a month-long enforcement and education campaign to curb hand-held cellphone use while driving.

The campaign is part of April’s nationwide “Distracted Driving Awareness Month,” and seeks to emphasize that phone calls and texts aren’t worth the risk of getting into an accident and endangering ones self or others, according to a press release by CHPD.

The National Safety Council estimates that over 275,000 cellphone-involved crashes have occurred this year, and an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study found that drivers using their phones are four times more likely to get into an injury collision.
