Roseville Hotel and Conference Center Steps Forward
The Roseville City Council unanimously approved a $1.3 million appropriation from the Strategic Improvement Fund as part of phase one for a Hotel and Conference Center.
For years the business community and city officials throughout South Placer County have expressed a desire and need for a Hotel and Conference Center in South Placer County. Phase one includes Environmental Impact Reports, Design and Analysis, Hotel studies along with additional feasibility studies.
