Results (so far) of the Petition Requesting to Extend Blue Oaks Boulevard

On Jan 10th the City Council approved a $30,000 road extension between Phillip Road and Westbook to allow emergency services to get to northwestern part of Westpark more quickly than having to drive the long way around. This is only a temporary route to improve public safety until the development community finishes the connection between Blue Oaks and Westbrook, which currently doesn't have an estimated start date.

It is important to understand that this road is only for emergency vehicles (not public vehicles) because it will not be built to standards for public use.

MOMS Club Roseville West

Founded in 2001, the Roseville West Chapter of MOMS Club was created to provide a support system to both stay-at-home moms and working part-time moms. Mothers have an opportunity bond with other mothers and get involved in community service. The Club is an official chapter of the national and international MOMS Club, an organization that serves over 100,000 mothers in over 2,000 chapters. 

A variety of activities on different dates and times are available each month to club members – you can pick and choose what works best for you and your schedule!  Members and their families are welcome to attend many wonderful events including: field trips, tours, age-based playgroups, park play dates, holiday parties, the ever-popular moms’ nights out, and many more fun activities which provide a great platform for bonding between kids and parents.

Community service and working with local charities is also a huge part of the chapter efforts. MOMS Club® is a nonprofit corporation and a 501 (C) (3) publicly-supported charity registered with the IRS. The Club conducts several service projects throughout the year, including a monthly Coffee for Cause event where a specific charity/need is identified and items are donated towards. In September, funds were collected to help those in need after the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The Club also holds their Quarter Craze fundraiser each year, raising $6,855 this year for StandUp Placer. 

In 2017, the Roseville North and West chapters of MOMS Club merged into one club serving the zip codes of 95678 & 95747. In addition, the club also welcomes moms from 95843 (Antelope) and 95648 (Lincoln).  If you are interested in becoming a part of this wonderful community of mothers, please email momsclubofrosevillewest@hotmail.com for more information.
