The Central Plumas Recreation and Park District was formed by a voter mandate in 1953. The District is dedicated to providing a wide variety of recreation and park opportunities to the residents of Quincy, Meadow Valley and the outlying areas located within its political boundaries. The District is governed by a publicly elected Board of Directors that meets in open session on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Funding for the District comes from a combination of sources including local property tax (60%), park and recreation activity fees (34%) and other miscellaneous sources (6%). The District is also very appreciative of tax deductible donations of property, vehicles or other endowments. The District's regular staff is comprised of a General Manager, Recreation Supervisor, and an Administrative Secretary/Bookkeeper. The District also employs a host of part-time lifeguards, gym supervisors and maintenance workers each summer season.
