14 la Wednesday, June 17, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter The Feather River Inn executive golf course boasts a long history: it was designed in 1919 and built in 1920. It opened in 1921 as nine holes spanning 3,050 yards. Its first tournament was played Aug. 20, 1921. Photos by Ann Powers Steps to restore and reopen the historical turn-of-the-century Feather River Inn in Blairsden have hit a rough patch over fire annexation negotiations, INN, from page 1B and area resident Harry Moos, who was also a key player in the AB 1600 legislation passed in 1987. "But I think a conservative economic benefit report made public would be of great help. The Building Industry Association in Sacramento could put this together for them and I think someone needs to help in this important matter." While neither Schomac nor GFPD said they've contacted the BIA yet, they agree with Moos on the "important matter" part. "It's not about politics," explained Schoff. "It's about the growth and support of the community." GFPD board chairman John Sciborski concurred, extending an invitation to the developer. "(Schoff) should come down and talk to us," he offered. "We'd be happy to speak with him. There are a lot of folks who would like to see that get moving." Schomac Group owns several developments in Plumas County including the Nakoma Golf Resort and Spa, the Woodbridge housing development and The Lodge at Nakoma, scheduled to open this summer followed by The Marketplace at Nakoma and a recreation center with construction slated to begin in September. Schoff said all of these projects will help generate tourism and tax revenue, meet the increasing lodging needs of the area's growth (aka "Reno Gold Rush" and corporate relocation), help re-establish the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl, create jobs, benefit local merchants and attract the "rec and tech" crowd along with young families "who are motivated for positive change -- but also careful change,": "I think it's going to be a really special place and I view the Feather River Inn as an absolute centerpiece of that story," he said. "I hope the tone of the conversation (with GFPD) changes." The Graeagle Fire Protection District holds its regular public meetings the third Thursday of every month at 9 a.m. The next meeting,is scheduled for June 18 at the district office located at 7620 Highway 89 in Graeagle.
