More than eight months after the Camp Fire, an official, long-term recovery plan is in place. The 143-page guide opens the gates for the town council to seek money from outside sources. 

Lauren Gill, Paradise Town manager says the priority now is giving people a clear path to rebuild. A working sewage system, better evacuation routes and affordable housing are among the projects her team aims to address in the long-term recovery plan. 

The recovery plan lists a working sewer system as a primary community priority, with a development timeline of three to five years. The estimated cost is listed as ranging from 60 to 100 million dollars. 

Affordable housing is dependent on a working sewer system and is listed as a Tier 2 project. The estimated price tag is 11 million dollars. The development timeline ranges from two to four years. 

The recovery plan also covers a project for an emergency notification system that includes an alarm system.
