Interest initially started with a group of Sierraville, "Randolph," Sattley and outlying area residents who are lucky to call the beautiful Sierra Valley our home.

Sierraville.org is all about neighbors helping neighbors.  Taking that one step further, when there's a consensus among community members, we look into what can be done, and then we get it done.  This involves working with local agencies or it also involves neighbors showing up with work gloves or rakes and shovels...whatever is needed, to make our community a better place to live.  We are not an economic development group or a group that promotes tourism.  We simply live in the Sierra Valley, we love it here, and we want to collectively make our voices heard.  Sierraville.org also serves to get the word out about things going on, that might interest those of us who live in here.

 

A steering committee has formed to guide efforts.  We are sizing up priorities, and will make recommendations to the group as a whole. Two sub-committees formed to organize a community cleanup day, which happened on Sat., June 25 and another group focused their attention on one particular project that has involved asbestos removal and demolition.

Sierraville.org is all about neighbors helping neighbors.

 

We are a diverse group that has found common ground regarding local concerns.  Once a consensus among community members has been confirmed, we look at what we can do and figure out how to get it done.  It's pretty much that simple.  

 

We are approaching projects with a sense of humanity.

 

We have found success working with local agencies, but the real action happens as neighbors show up, some in vehicles, others on a bike, with work gloves, rakes and shovels...whatever is needed...to make our small corner of the Sierra Valley a better place for all.  We are not an organization that promotes tourism or a homeowners association creating or enforcing CC&Rs.  We simply live in the Sierra Valley, and we love it here.  

 

Sierraville.org also serves to get the word out about things going on that either might affect us or that might be of interest.

 

We are looking at dates for a community meeting to hear from attendees and the county planner and supervisor to further our efforts in Sierraville. Keep an eye out for an email from us with more information!

 

Question:  Where can I get a Sierraville.org sticker?
 
Answer:  We've just printed more, that have the We Love Where We Live taken off so it's simply a Sierraville.org die-cut sticker.  They are free!  Email info@Sierraville.org if you want one!  
Question:  How did the Sierraville Community Clean Up Day go?
 
Answer:  Well believe it or not, this event happened three and a half years ago.  We're hoping there's community interest in doing this again next year. 
 
Per a somewhat old blog post on this site (see the What's New page), dated June 29, 2016 here's what happened: 
A majority of Sierraville residents participated and six and a half 40 yard dumpsters were filled, plus a Sierra County dump truck made numerous trips to the Loyalton landfill.  The landfill accepted 270 yards total of items from Sierraville that day (on June 25).  Pretty impressive!  

Question:   What's next?

 

Answer:  We'll likely hold a community meeting to make a plan for next steps.
