Although I was not raised in Citrus Heights I will claim this area ans other surounding suburbs as though I was. The lush greenery that dresses the landscape in this City and its local surroundings and truly the valley and mountains at large, are breathtaking. There is no doubt that our community and its big sister Sacramento, Ca are c alled the "City on Trees". Additionally, there is not shortage of outdoor fun with rivers and lakes abound. The best part on being a Citrus Heights transplant is that you are pretty much in teh middle of some other far away locations, like the San Fransicisco Bay Area or Lake Tahoe, Ca or Reno, Nevada, making travel times short and fun LONG!
I have lived in Citrus Heights all my life and I have been able to see the community grow a lot over the years. The town of Citrus Heights has really made an effort to build more parks, upgrade shopping centers, and keep things clean. It is a work in progress but it is much more enjoyable to go out now. There are a lot of restaurants and coffee shops scattered around. It is a small town so commuting within the town doesn't take long. The community center and town hall have been recently renovated. There are a lot of local events that take place there. We have a beautiful community garden that a lot of elderly people tend to as a hobby. I would like to see the town focus on local education and prioritizing the families that live here. The children are our future and we should focus on providing them with quality education and setting them up for success. I would also like to see more local events take place in the town. Small events usually take place in neighboring towns.
