Nevada County discriminates against Companion/Service Dogs. If you have a dog and a prescription for it, you might as well forget living in Nevada County. They are very anti-dog. Especially the local homeless shelter, who influenced the Union newspaper not to publish anything on the subject. The landlord companies have raised low income rents, and commit credit blacklisting far and wide. I was told by a county employee, "If you have bad credit, you won't be able to live here (Grass Valley). Private landlords who rent rooms are ultra greedy and particular, too. They often ask to run your credit (and what does that have to do with you paying rent, anyway?). This whole county thinks their streets are paved with gold, and have their noses up in the air. If anyone has any positive stories about Nevada County, I would love to hear them. I actually don't live there anymore. Can't afford the golden streets!
