A housing crisis in Plumas County is not only affecting you from buying a home it is also preventing businesses from recruiting new employees. To solve the issue for the Plumas Unified School district who has seen positions turned down due to lack of housing, in one small first step purchased a four-unit apartment complex in East Quincy at a cost of nearly 750,000 dollars. the district was able to buy the unit with the use of one-time unrestricted funds. The homes will serve as transitional housing for those who have been newly hired and are new to the area, available for at least the first year until permanent housing can be found. An additional benefit of the buy is the ability to build an additional 19 units on the 1-acre parcel that the district may partner with another interested employer to develop. Current tenants of the apartments however are now forced to find other housing over the next 60 days when escrow closes.
