When Scotia was a company-owned town, it was a single large parcel of land (approximately 225 acres). To pave the way for private home ownership in Scotia, the community has been subdivided into individual lots, so those who purchase a home will own the property it sits on as well.
Infrastructure upgrades have been and are being made throughout Scotia, such as water and sewer upgrades, new sidewalks, and new storm drains. The Scotia Community Services District is responsible for providing the essential public services.
A variety of services and businesses are available in Scotia, all within a short walk from the front door of new homeowners.
The town is complete with a medical clinic (Scotia Bluffs Health Center), shopping center including a market and deli and pharmacy, a Post Office, cardlock fuel station, Stanwood A. Murphy Elementary School, and the historic Scotia Inn (possibly re-opening soon!) Public transit is also available in Scotia, with a bus stop on Main Street near the Scotia Inn.
Recreational activities are numerous including a redwood grove picnic area, baseball and soccer fields, and a community forest.
