The Pleasant Hill Area
Pleasant Hill attracts residents who are seeking a peaceful setting in the country with all the benefits of the city close at hand. City and Cass County growth has nearly doubled in the past 30 years, with the biggest spurt over the last 10 years. Families are drawn to the area where a sense of neighborhood exists, providing a solid network of support from caring people. Country living also attracts residents, as rural areas are dotted with new homes on small acreages.
Pleasant Hill's community is made up of mostly middle-class families, with the majority supported by two working parents. Agricultural, manufacturing, service, and public sector opportunities provide local jobs for approximately 2,000 people. Many of Pleasant Hill's families utilize the district-operated Before and After-School Child Care program or one of the local child care services.
