Photo courtesy Big Fish Creations Education and a skilled workforce are two driving forces behind Portola City Manager Robert Meacher's efforts to connect with Reno. With its flurry of economic development, Reno will have huge impacts on its neighboring community of Portola, said Meacher, who speculates that curriculum and workforce requirements will be closely tied to the success of this economic wave. The process of outreach began when a core group met with Heidi Gansert, executive director of external relations, and Steve Maples, Ph.D., director of admissions at the University of Nevada, Reno on Jan. 15. The core group consisted of Meacher; Patty Clawson, marketing manager of Big Fish Creations/Site Council member of Portola Junior-Senior High School; Chip Lindloff, senior executive director of Applied Recruiting Solutions; Aurora Westwood, program coordinator of the Plumas County Office of Education; and Carlie McCarthy, Feather River College academic advisor and recruiter. The meeting connected Plumas County education providers with university leaders, and provided an opportunity to exchange ideas and consider future employment demands for both regions. "With the changing business landscape of this super region, education will be an important component in the economic development of Portola," said Meacher. He said he believes that from preschool to high school, just fulfilling basic needs is not enough to help Plumas County kids compete. He added, "With the opportunities that will be made available by the economic ~gold rush' of Reno, it makes sense to work together." The University of Nevada, Reno may play a vital role as a "pipeline" to reach Plumas County students at all levels with opportunities like KIDS U, which is aimed at elementary students, or Nevada Bound, a program introducing college life to high school and transfer students. "The willingness of Heidi Gansert and Steve Maples to deploy resources to help jump-start Plumas County is very encouraging," said Meacher: The group concurred that there is no question that the, value of a good education is essential to growth and future development. Clawson explained, "As a 1995 UNR graduate and parent of a UNR freshman, I know firsthand the quality of education offered at the university, and with its proximity to our community, it proves to be a valuable resource right in our backyard." According to the group, the collaboration is all about communities helping communities, creating not only educational opportunities but giving a workforce the tools to succeed. "The synergy between the City of Portola, Plumas Unified School District, Feather River College and the University of Nevada, Reno should produce a skilled workforce able to benefit both regions throughout this economic boom," said Lindloff. Meacher reports that the outreach to the University of Nevada, Reno is just one of many effor~ being made by the city of PoTtola in the quest for community revitalization and the betterment of Plumas County as a whole. Schomac buys Woodbridge Ann Powers Staff Writer a powers@plu After recently closing escrow on the Woodbridge development in Portola for about $700,000 plus $267,000 in property taxes, the developers report they would like the public to help them rename the project. Schomac Group Inc. invites Feather Publishing readers to post name guggestions in the comment section after this story on Schomac said it is looking for a name befitting the future housing and commercial area located at the end of Gulling Street behind Portola High School. Plans call for 1,005 dwelling units and approximately 170,000 square feet of business space. Michael Schoff, Schomac's owner; came up with the naming contest, according to company representatives. "It was Michael's idea," said Dan Gallagher, Schomac's vice president of development. "We're running a contest and would like the community's input on a new name." Portola City Council members announced the Woodbridge purchase during their Jan. 28 meeting, saying the deal was sealed in December. For the development's initial phase, Schomac officials have committed to building a fire road through the property connecting Gulling Street to A15 this spring. Housing, park development, street lighting, sidewalks, roundabouts and more will be included in later phases. Council members agreed it's in the community's best interest to be flexible with future negotiations and said they are eager to move forward with the construction. "It's activity and it's movement, which kindles our optimism for the future of Portola," said Council Member Bill Powers. "It's a very professional relationship with Schomac. We'll see more parts of the development plans over the next few months." At a previous council meeting, Schomac President Ryan Schoff said he sees the area like Truckee looked 30 years ago and envisions the coordination of several projects leading to an increased interest in housing. Schomac also owns the Nakoma Golf Resort and Spa and the Feather River Inn, . and is building The Lodge at Nakoma in Clio. Gallagher said the company is confident their developments will bring growth and jobs to the region: and "benefit the greater good." t
