Local Meeting Notes

The organization team for the Indian Valley Innovation Hub held their first meeting and will meet again this week. The goal is to support innovators in getting businesses that make, grow, or raise products for export out of Plumas County up and running as soon as possible.

The Economic Recovery Grant written by the Sierra Business Council has been tentatively approved. That grant will pay for a full-time position or two half-time positions to help deal with the impact of the Dixie Fire.

On May 25, 2022, DFC staff participated in a Wildfire Recovery Peer Learning Network that was facilitated by the Governor’s Office on Planning and advocated by Tracey Ferguson.

The DFC is working closely with Plumas County in supporting the work for Federal Procurements. They are also looking at the CBDG grant for supporting local businesses recovery and rebuilds, the Cal Home Loan, and various grants for the water/sewer districts and areas impacted by the fires.

The Dixie Fire Collaborative Community Meeting will take place this coming Saturday, June 18, from 11:00 to 1:00. There will be updates on various topics, as usual. In addition, the Collaborative will share important information regarding the impact of accepting the PG&E settlement. The first installment of PG&E funds were received by the Dixie Fire Collaborative. The balance of the three million dollars PG&E is donating is expected to arrive later this summer. Learn more at the meeting this Saturday!

Workshops for fire survivors

United Policyholders is offering the following workshops in June for people affected by the 2021 and 2020 wildfires in California. Please note some of these events have passed, but several are still upcoming.

Summer Camp

School is out and the sun is shining! It's summer camp time! Mountain Passages, Plumas Charter School, and Plumas Strong are hosting a summer camp for ages 5 - 10 at Indian Valley Academy in Taylorsville. The camp will run from June 27th to July 1st from 1 to 5 pm each day. For more information contact Sue Weber at weber.susan@me.com.

Summer is perfect for reading!

The Greenville Library has moved out of the elementary school building and into the high school building. Summer is a great time to get lost in a good book. Check out their new location and support our local library. 📖

Getting excited for the fair!

The Plumas-Sierra County Fair is right around the corner. This year, the fair will be held July 28th - 31th. The Official 2022 Exhibition Guide is out and you can view or print a copy on their website. I can already smell those corn dogs and all that pine bedding in the animal barns. See you at the fair!
