The Wall of Recognition was created in 2018 to permanently commemorate the community pillars of Rocklin. Five honorees are etched into the stone for their contributions to the City, including the Ruhkala Family, the Rocklin Public Safety Volunteers, former City Manager Dr. Carlos Urrutia, the Rocklin Historical Society, and former City Planning Director Terry Richardson.
