Lost Sierra: Live in paradise while working remotely

01/23/2013 9:47 AM | Isabelle Geiger (Administrator)
There are great changes brewing in eastern Sierra County — a new fiber system and improved internet access with expanded coverage is in the works, with the idea of the county being able to support the ability for people to live here while working from home, for a remote business.  More and more people are doing just this, but you can't if there's not the technology here to make it possible. But that is about to change!

So all of you who have jobs that you can do from anywhere, or those of you with an employer who has a generous off-site/remote work policy-- this is your opportunity to make that dream come true: live here but keep your current job! Play AND stay! Get up early and go fishing before work. Take an afternoon ski and make up work in the evening. Hike Round Lake Trail, take a dip, eat your lunch by the lake  and then get back to work, refreshed.

Sierra, Plumas and Lassen Counties are now working together ensure that technology will be there to support this nationwide movement of making us be able to live our lives to the fullest. The Lost Sierra region is one of the most incredible locations in this country when it comes to recreational options and housing affordability.  And now we're adding business relocation opportunities to that. With our proximity to Reno/Sparks, Truckee and Sacramento, we are well positioned to build upon the momentum of those persons desiring to live and work in the beautiful Sierras and who in the past could not make the leap without expansion of technological opportunities. 

So don’t just come to play  —  come to STAY and play and live in the beautiful tri-county areas of the Sierras and bring your entrepreneurial spirit to our affordable and community oriented locations.
