|New Library Facility in Truckee Update
Team Dahle witnessed the approval of the resolution for the Joint Powers Agreement concerning a new library facility in the Truckee area. This collaborative vision‚ involving the County of Nevada‚ Town of Truckee‚ Friends of the Truckee Library‚ and the broader Truckee community‚ had been in development for over a decade.
Chair of the Nevada County Board of Supervisors‚ Hardy Bullock‚ invited me to join the Library Alignment group in 2020. Throughout the years‚ I facilitated State Librarian Greg Lucas’s visits to the Truckee Library and the future site‚ actively participating in monthly meetings. In support of the project‚ Truckee Friends of the Library President Louise Zabriskie‚ along with members Kathleen Eagan and Mike Rogers‚ attended Tuesday’s meeting. The JPA received approval from the Truckee Town Council later that evening. We eagerly anticipate the ongoing success of this community-driven initiative.
|Redding Area Bus Authority to Provide Free Rides for Veterans on Fixed Routes and Demand Response Services
As of Tuesday‚ January 2‚ 2024‚ any veteran can ride free on the Redding Area Bus Authority’s fixed route and Demand Response services throughout Shasta County.
For the past 14 years‚ the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) has collected donations for RABA Salute to the Veterans. The event provides local veterans with a punch pass valued at $10.00 to use on any RABA service. The Shasta County Veterans Services Office and Nation’s Finest distribute the passes. In an effort to make it easier for veterans to ride RABA services‚ veterans can show one of the following forms of ID cards to get a free ride on any RABA service:
Veterans with current punch passes can continue to use them until supply is depleted. After that‚ veterans can transition to using one of the forms of ID mentioned above. RABA Salute to Veterans will continue to run annually in November to raise funds for the transportation needs of veterans in Shasta County. For more information on this program‚ click here.
|Downpayment Assistance for 1st Time Homebuyers
With the latest news of interest rates affecting the housing market‚ we know you are well aware of the challenges facing a first-time homebuyer. In the past few years‚ our state has experienced a housing shortage. We want to share with you a state resource that can help those looking to purchase their first home this year.
The California Dream For All down payment assistance program is reopening for first-time homebuyers in our state. This program is designed to benefit residents in California seeking to buy their first place. Share this email and please pass along this information to anyone you know who can benefit from this sometimes lesser known opportunity provided by the state of California! The California Dream For All can help make it possible for people to own a home who can afford a mortgage payment‚ but perhaps struggle to save enough for an initial down payment.
Because of how popular the program was last year‚ this year‚ the California Housing Finance Agency is utilizing a lottery program for applicants to the program. Once your application is approved‚ you will have 60 days to put a down payment on a home. More information on the program‚ and how to take the first steps to talk to a CalHFA Preferred Loan Officer‚ click HERE.
