The Oasis Plaza in Cache Creek was inspected by several different agencies on Jan. 31 after the building’s owner voluntarily let them in.
Mayor John Ranta entered the building to have a look. He said there was a structural engineer, the Cache Creek Fire Chief, members of the TNRD building inspection dept., Interior Health, Village staff and Joe Carhoun, the building’s owner.
“It is a building in need of work,” said Ranta. “I think the building owner will need to make some decisions.”
He said the Village is waiting for the “experts” report on the inspection – possibly before the end of summer, but maybe longer.
The Village gave the owner an ultimatum back in October to either allow an inspection of the premises or face an order from the court. The old shopping plaza has been the subject of many complaints in recent years.
