The City of Citrus Heights commemorates the 25th anniversary of cityhood with the release of a book entitled, “Becoming the City of Citrus Heights: the history of a unique incorporation.” Written by Sacramento author Miranda Culp in collaboration with Citrus Heights businessman Bill Van Duker, the book chronicles the 12-year legal battle between Sacramento County and the residents of Citrus Heights. The struggle to attain cityhood ascended all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and changed the nature of incorporation in the state from that point on.
The City’s History & Arts Grant Program funded the project, which outlined the publication of “Becoming the City of Citrus Heights”. Local writer and bookstore owner, Miranda Culp, conducted numerous interviews and copious research. Bill Van Duker, an integral member of the Citrus Heights Incorporation Project (CHIP), contributed documents and perspective on the long and fractious journey to cityhood. Production and printing of the book is a gift to the City by Bill and Janie Van Duker and All Star Printing.
