There has been lots of chatting going on this Summer! We’re happy to be starting our 3rd month of park chats where we pick a different Roseville park to meet for an informal conversation. It’s so refreshing to meet with people in person again! So far we’ve had between 6 and 12 people each week. That size makes for a great conversation.

We realize showing up can be a little intimidating but we promise either Kathy, or Sherry, or both of us will be there with a warm welcome. We’ll have a pinwheel so it’s easy to identify us, and whether you’re a talker or more of a listener, you can join the conversation in whatever way makes you comfortable. Some have brought a friend or a spouse the first time 🙂. Come for 10 minutes or an hour or more. It’s just about making connections to others after a long, long time apart.

This week we will be at Owasso Hills Park (
https://www.cityofroseville.com/216/Owasso-Hills-Park).
There is street parking, but you will see a playground. If you enter near the playground, you will be able to find us.
Bring your own chair and your favorite morning beverage.

In another hopeful sign that things are returning to normal, we are going to re-start our Monthly Group Volunteer Events. These events give you an opportunity to volunteer with us as a group. It’s a great way to learn about wonderful organizations in our community, do something good, and meet new people. It’s a trifecta win!

Summer’s well on it’s way and at Kids in Need, they are beginning their backpack builds in earnest! This is a family friendly one-time volunteer event to ‘Change Lives with School Supplies’! On Thursday, July 15 from 1 pm to 3 pm we are hosting a group volunteer event at the Kids in Need Foundation for up to 15 volunteers. We will either be sorting and organizing supplies, or packing backpacks for school kids. This is a unique opportunity because kids as young as age 5 are welcome.

Who/What Decides Where You Live, Work and Play in Roseville?

Who cares about city zoning regulations?  You should!  City zoning regulations determine what can be built where within the City, as well as other property standards focused on protecting the public health, safety and welfare of the neighborhood.  The City of Roseville is currently in the process of updating the City’s zoning regulations and are asking for the public’s input. 

In this meeting, Janice Gundlach, the Roseville Community Development Director will give us an overview of what a Zoning Code is and why it’s important for the public to engage in the update process, as well as the potential impacts of not providing input.  Understanding zoning now can help ensure future development in the City doesn’t catch you by surprise later.

Why Do I Need a Permit to Build in Roseville?

You probably already know that you need a permit from the City before building in Roseville.  But you may not know what or who determines the regulations you are required to meet.  What exactly does the City control when it comes to building?  What regulations are defined by the State or Federal Government?  In this meeting, David Englund, the Roseville Building Official will explain what the Building Code is and why it exists.
