The old Nevada County Health and Welfare building on Willow Road is vacant and neighbors are claiming it is attracting an unwanted presence. Evidence of that are calls for service by the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.
Captain Jeff Pettitt says that it is not safe for people to be in the building and playing around in it. Just before Christmas, deputies responded to an alarm at the old facility.
Captain Pettitt asks that if anyone is aware of activity around the building to contact the sheriff’s office.
The owner of the building was planning on converting it to senior housing but the economic downturn of California around 2009 put a hold on those plans.
