The City of Roseville and Placer Valley Tourism are moving forward on plans to build a regional park with eight to 12 multi-use fields to strengthen Placer County’s draw as a major sports and recreation destination.
The Regional Sports Complex, located along the western edge of the Roseville city limits, will serve youth and amateur soccer, lacrosse, football, rugby and various other long field-specific sports teams.
Conversion of the irrigation at Mahany Park's to recycled water and the approval of an agreement with Placer Valley Tourism on the new Regional Sports Complex were highlights from the April 15th City Council meeting.

Roseville Electric Utility regularly looks for ways to safely improve operational efficiency and reduce costs, while maintaining our high services levels. Over five years ago, we initiated an evaluation of options to improve operational performance and reduce maintenance costs associated with management of wastewater at the Roseville Energy Park (REP).
After studying more than a dozen different options, the utility pursued an option that increased efficiency and reduced costs by using deep well injection technology. After further evaluation and study, we've determined that operational improvements and enhancements that use deep well injection technology as an alternative to the current system being used at the REP, is no longer an economically viable option.
