Remaining predominantly rural through the 1960’s, Citrus Heights began its emergence as a regionally important retail destination in the 1970’s with the opening of the Sunrise Mall and Birdcage Walk shopping centers. The seismic stability of Citrus Heights that distinguishes it from much of coastal California, undoubtedly contributed to its growth and maturation. After existence as an unincorporated area of northeastern Sacramento County for nearly 100 years, Citrus Heights became an independent city offering local municipal services in January 1997. Unchanged, however, is our traditional Citrus Heights hospitality. Citrus Heights is home to a bustling retail and service industry. The Sunrise Marketplace, a business improvement district, is the center of the city’s business activity, offering a wide variety of retail, dining, and service establishments. With over 600 businesses, including the Sunrise Mall, Citrus Heights offers major department stores, specialty stores, and service businesses.
