Roseville city officials have been receiving lots of phone calls and emails from residents questioning a proposed fitness center on East Roseville Parkway.

Those questions stem from an anonymous flier that was mailed out containing misinformation about the Life Time Fitness project, according to Roseville spokeswoman Megan MacPherson. Here are the facts, as provided by the city:

  • Project is located at 1435 East Roseville Parkway.
  • Life Time Fitness submitted an application to the city for approval of a 120,000-square-foot fitness facility with an outdoor recreation component on Dec. 3, 2012.
  • Project is still in the initial review phase. A public meeting was held on Jan. 29 to present the project to neighbors and receive feedback.
  • The majority of the building would be 38-feet tall, and 53-feet tall at the highest point for a sky light.
  • Business hours of operation would be from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Traffic impact will be minimal. The site was planned for this type of activity and building out this is area is already incorporated into the city’s traffic models. The project is expected to generate about 3,952 daily trips. The city’s traffic model assumed that 189,000 square feet of retail would be built at the site, which would generate about 8,141 daily trips.
  • Requested entitlements for the project: ordinance amendment to add outdoor recreation as a conditionally permitted use in the community commercial zone; specific plan amendment to eliminate two parcel specific conditions (20-space Park and Ride requirement, and pedestrian connection from the adjacent affordable senior apartment complex); conditional use permit to allow for outdoor recreation; design review permit to allow the construction of a 120,000 square-foot-fitness center, outdoor pool and 14 tennis courts with related site improvements including parking, site/building lighting and landscaping.
  • City anticipates item will go before Roseville Planning Commission in June or July.
