More in Community:
Events highlights in Citrus Heights this week include the annual Community Camp Out in Rusch Park, a free outdoor movie showing of Paddington, and free train rides and a kids camp at the Citrus Town Center, among other events.
From Monday through Friday this week, city hall will operate out of the Fountain Square Drive Community Center while city offices are moving to a temporary location at 7927 Auburn Blvd. The move will allow for demolition of the old hall buildings in preparation for construction of a new medical office building at the corner of Greenback Lane and Fountain Square Drive.
Wednesday: A swarm of food trucks will once again descend on Rusch Park from 5 to 9 p.m., as part of a new 2015 Food Truck Mania summer event series at the park. Continuing through August, the wide array of food trucks will be out in the park on the second Wednesday of each month.
Thursday: The Citrus Heights city council will meet at its temporary location in the Community Center at 7 p.m. this Thursday. According to the meeting agenda, council members will consider approving several 2015-16 fiscal year amendments and updates relating to executive competition, payrate, and police benefits. Council members will also hear several other items, including an amendment to the City’s cardroom ordinance and a public hearing related to delinquent solid waste service charges.

Friday: A free “Summer Safari” kid’s camp will be held at the Citrus Town Center from 10:30 a.m. to noon, with rainforest-themed activities and free train rides around the shopping plaza afterwards until 2 p.m. Two other camps are also planned for July and August. (Click for camp schedule)
The weekend: The Citrus Town Center will also be hosting a free outdoor movie showing of the kids film “Paddington,” beginning at dusk on Saturday. The film is part of a summer outdoor movie series put on by the Town Center, with different films featured each month — all shown on a large inflatable projector screen at the corner of Greenback Lane and Sunrise Boulevard on the Town Center plaza.
On Saturday and Sunday, residents are invited to grab a tent and camp out with the community at Rusch Park. The overnight Community Camp Out began in 2001, and organizers call it “one of the best family events that the City sponsors.” (Click for additional info and registration form)
