Celebrations throughout the Year!
Our 10-year anniversary gave us the opportunity to celebrate all through the year with new events and expanded favorites including: 10-Year Kick Off Event, Student Art Contest, Red, White and Blue Parade, Anniversary Concert, Sunday FunDay and Fall Ball at City Hall.
The city held a "City Song" promotional contest. The entries where very creative and representative of residents who thoroughly enjoy living here in Citrus Heights. The City Council came to a consensus on the song "I Love Citrus Heights," a combination of lyrics from Nancy Welsh and music from Chris Kabolis. The song was formally approved by the Council on October 25th as the official song of the City of Citrus Heights.

Resident Satisfaction Survey
Toward the end of 2007, the city contracted with a private research firm to conduct the 3rd Resident Satisfaction Survey since our incorporation in 1997. Overall, the 2007 Resident Satisfaction Survey found that 10 years after the City's incorporation, residents of Citrus Heights are very satisfied with the job the City is doing to provide services. 89% of respondents stated they were satisfied with the City's overall provision of services, and over half of those respondents were very satisfied.
