Pioneer Sports Annex
In 2009, the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District acquired a three-acre parcel of undeveloped land adjacent to the Pioneer Park and Pool complex. The acquisition was the result of an opportunity purchase at approximately one-third of the appraised value of the property. One year later, in 2010, the District also acquired the adjoining one-acre parking area through the Federal Lands to Parks program. With that acquisition, at no cost to the District, there is deeded ingress and egress off Highway 70, as well as parking spaces for approximately 25-30 vehicles. The Board of Directors and District staff conducted several public workshops in 2010 to determine the best use of the property. What came out of that public input process was a plan to eventually develop the site into a community athletic field that could accommodate future youth and adult soccer programs as well as other sports and recreation activities. To date, no funding has been located or secured to facilitate the development of the Pioneer Sports Annex Facility. In 2020, a portion of the property was sold to the Plumas Charter School while the District maintained 1.5 acres for further park development. New projects are currently being discussed.
Utilization of the Pioneer Sports Annex site currently is limited to short term camping for patrons of the High Sierra Music Festival during the fourth of July weekend.
The Recreation and Park District invites and welcomes tax-deductible donations - large or small - toward the eventual completion of this most important project.
Individuals or groups wishing to participate in this endeavor are welcome to contact District General Manager, James Shipp, at 530-283-3278, or firstname.lastname@example.org, to explore options or possibilities.
