OROVILLE, Calif. - The Oroville City Council approved permits for the Rosewood Subdivision on Tuesday.

The permits will bring 40 new FEMA trailers to fill the Rosewood Subdivision in Thermalito. 

There have been mixed reactions from residents about the possibility of the trailers coming to the area. 

"The city was not even contacted until a week ago and to meet with the city and CAL OES and FEMA on a project that has been working on for three months," said Dave Quintel. 

City officials admitted that they believe the process of bringing the trailers could have been smoother. 

"Because the project just kind of developed and by the time that CAL OES and FEMA came to the city it was pretty much completed and we needed to find a way to issue temporary permits so this could be there," said Bill Lagrone. "Because we are geared towards permanent housing, not temporary housing."

Oroville Police Chief Bill Lagrone said they had to come up with a process so they could finish the necessary inspections and collect the fees. 

"So we felt it was important to collect those fees for the community so the city of Oroville didn't bare the entire burden of this project," Lagrone said. 

Camp Fire survivors can stay up to 18 months in the Rosewood FEMA trailers unless the city approves a new permit for Cal OES and FEMA for Rosewood.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
