Welcome to Rolla, Missouri

MayorOn behalf of the Rolla City Council, City staff and residents, welcome to Rolla, Missouri! Whether you are just passing through, relocating from another area, or thinking about making Rolla your home, we're glad you’re here.

If you haven't already noticed, friendliness is something you'll find a lot of in our city, along with abundant recreational, cultural and educational opportunities. We have a saying in Rolla that the quality of life is high, but not the cost of living.

Whether you're looking for great authentic restaurants, affordable lodging, or a beautiful park, we have what you are looking for in Rolla! Couple all this with nationally ranked blue-ribbon schools, a leading technological university (Missouri University of Science and Technology), world-class theatre, year-round community festivals, a historic downtown and an outstanding parks and recreation system, and you'll quickly see why we have been recognized as one of The 100 Best Small Towns in America (Norman Crampton).

Rolla also boasts one of the most state-of-the-art recreation facilities in the MidWest. The Centre – a 63,000-square-foot health and recreation complex, offers everything from a cutting-edge 4,000-square-foot fitness center, to an amazing Aquatic Center, gymnasium, indoor walking track and recreational programs for the entire community to enjoy. During the hot summer months SplashZone, Rolla's water park, located in beautiful Ber Juan Park, offers a refreshing break for families.

mayorWhile some refer to Rolla as the foothills to the Ozarks – in particular the Mark Twain National Forest – there is much more to Rolla than our scenic rolling hills, world-renown trout streams and highly sought after recreational opportunities on the Gasconade, Little Piney, Big Piney and Meramec Rivers.

Phelps County, of which Rolla is the county seat, includes such diverse industries as Brewer Science, Inc., Mo-Sci., Inc., Missouri Department of Natural Resources, the USGS, Mark Twain National Forest Headquarters, and Royal Canin USA. Missouri University of Science and Technology is actively positioning itself as one of the nation's top technological universities and research parks.

High quality medical facilities at Phelps County Regional Medical Center, the Bond Clinic and St. John's Clinic, together with an abundance of cultural opportunities at the Castleman Hall Performing Arts Center, Ozark Actors Theatre and Arts Rolla, are additional assets that make Rolla such a desirable place to live, work and play.

Sincerely, William S. Jenks, III, Mayor

Mayor Jenks receives The Missourian Award
