Rocklin residents love their parks. Despite tough economic times, nearly 83% of those who voted said Yes to Measure A to continue funding park maintenance. The big disappointment is that only 45% of registered voters took advantage of the opportunity to have their voices heard. Of the 29,678 registered voters, just 13,343 votes were tallied. 

In 1987, over 1,500 residents petitioned the City Council and asked for a park maintenance and development assessment.  In response, the council established the Rocklin Park Maintenance and Development District and an assessment was levied to fund the district.   In 1998, the assessment was converted to a special tax in the same amount as the prior assessment.  Rocklin voters approved the Park Maintenance and Development Act of 1998 with over 70% voting to extend the park funding another 10 years.

In 2009, voters came back to the polls with overwhelming support to pass Measure A , capturing nearly 83% of the vote. Below are the results as tallied by the Placer County Board of Elections.
