Community Newsletter

The City of Rohnert Park is pleased to present our Community Newsletter as a service to our residents. The newsletter is distributed every two months as an insert in the utility bill mailers and available on the City’s website.

The intent of the newsletter is to provide a supplemental tool for maintaining open communication with residents. The City is devoted to the community by keeping its residents informed of current and upcoming events as well as providing general points of interest for consideration.

Like all cities and counties in California, the City of Rohnert Park has a general plan. The plan is local government's long-term blueprint for the future. A lot has changed since our General Plan was last updated in 2000. It's important that as we update the City's General Plan, we take into account the changes in our community, emerging issues and opportunities, and changes to State law.

Over the last several months we've conducted numerous outreach efforts to determine what you, the community, want and envision for us in the next 20 years. A report titled The Alternative Report is now available for your review. Visit to learn more about the report and analysis.
