If you’ve always dreamed of whipping up your own Zelda, Mario or Duke Nukem, you may just get the chance to turn that fantasy into a profitable reality.

The Handle District to add new design-forward trash and recycling bins

It’s a too-familiar scenario: you're walking down the street, empty coffee cup in hand, and block after block, there's not a trash or recycling bin in sight. The Handle District—a hip midtown neighborhood bounded by 18th, 19th and L Streets and Capitol Avenue—is on a mission to change that. In the next several weeks, the district will install 12 trash cans and six recycling bins whose sleek, modern design may just turn a few heads. These new receptacles, made with 30 percent recycled aluminum alloy and eco-friendly paint, were originally designed by San Francisco-based Landor Associates for the Central Park Conservancy in New York, which commissioned 700 of the trash and recycling cans in 2013.

Oak Park’s popular Gather event will launch in Rocklin this summer

Come together, right now, over in Rocklin. Unseen Heroes, the team behind Oak Park’s popular Gather nights, is exporting its warm-weather community event series to the Sacramento suburb beginning in June. Gather began in 2014 and has since grown into a happening outdoor affair with local food, music and art that brings an average of over 3,000 people to the streets of Oak Park’s Triangle District each time it’s held. Rocklin’s version of the family-friendly (and dog-friendly) event will be held every fourth Thursday from June to October at Quarry Park, which was redeveloped last year into a new 17-acre gathering place with nature trails and an amphitheater and now hosts events like Rocklin’s outdoor summer concert series and Shakespeare festival....
