City moves into next phase of competition
Tuesday, June 23, 2015 — Susanville progressed as a quarterfinalist in the America’s Best Communities competition, and now, as a part of the process, the Lassen County Chamber of Commerce, which is leading the applicant team, is looking for funds from the community.
The Chamber secured the area’s first success in the competition, which strives to stimulate economic revitalization in small communities and towns across rural America. The competition is sponsored by Frontier Communications, DISH Network, CoBank and The Weather Channel.
According to Patti Hagata, Chamber executive director, Susanville was named in the top 50 applicants out of the original roughly 130 applicants. She said Susanville was the only quarterfinalist in California.
