RCONA


The Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA) is a not-for-profit, non-partisan umbrella organization comprised of representatives of Roseville’s individual neighborhood associations (view website).

History

In 1993 the Roseville Police Department began its community policing project, organizing three neighborhood associations. Officers worked with the neighborhoods of Cherry Glen, Theiles, and Roseville Heights to fight crime and drugs, improve traffic, create a feeling of community, and improve the quality of life in these neighborhoods.

After three years of working on neighborhood issues, the original association members helped City staff organize the rest of the City of Roseville into neighborhood associations. With City of Roseville staff support, 28 association areas were identified. Five charter neighborhood associations formally incorporated the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA) in February 1997, and by the following year 38 neighborhood areas were identified.

Mission

The mission of RCONA is: "To improve the social, physical, and economic health in the Roseville community by sharing information, facilitating training and education, providing resources, and encouraging communication and participation among neighbors, neighborhoods, government, businesses and other participants."

City Support

Support from the City of Roseville is supplied by all departments, but in particular the Neighborhood Services Division of the Public Affairs and Communications Department and the Community Services Unit of the Police Department. This support consists of administrative and organizational assistance, workshop facilitation, supply and maintenance of maps and charts, liaison to City departments, and providing City staff to speak to groups as requested about issues and areas of interest.

Meetings

Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Martha Riley Community Library, located at 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd. These meetings are attended by the Board of Directors, consisting of a representative from each neighborhood association, and by the Neighborhood Services Division of the Public Affairs and Communications Department (916-774-5274)
