ROCKLIN --

The city of Rocklin is proposing a traffic calming program and receiving a lot of public input about it.

The goal, according to the city, is to improve traffic speed and safety in the community.

Rocklin's Public Services Department hosted a meeting Tuesday night to gather public opinion about various traffic calming measures. Dozens of people attended.

Several ideas are on the table to cut down on speeding, including traffic circles and speed bumps at various locations.

City planners were pleased with the amount of interest and input the meeting generated.

"It's nice when you get the community involved," said Justin Nartker, Rocklin's deputy director of public services. "I've been to a lot of public hearings ... where you don't get a lot of people showing up, and you don't get that input. For me, that makes a community kind of stale. In Rocklin we've got a lot of people that care, and I think that goes a long way."

The public services department will bring the community input to the city council to help the council decide what types of traffic calming measures to adopt.
