PARADISE, Calif. - Construction crews are hard at work to rebuild the Paradise Community Village after the 2018 Camp Fire burned it down.

“When it was destroyed, my heart was taken back pretty significantly,” said VP and Director of rental housing, Chris Zappettini.

Zappettini said the re-building process was not easy.

“Well, we first had to take a pause because you are dealing first with people's lives, so we just incrementally put things together one step at a time and we had the support of so many individuals along the way and that collaborative spirit gets you through those challenges,” said Zappettini.

The 36-unit affordable housing rental property originally took 10 years to build. The Paradise Mayor is just glad to see the town come together again.

“This is exciting to me because this shows that people want to invest back into Paradise," shared Mayor, Greg Bolin. "They see that Paradise is worth investing into. Everybody I have talked to is just so encouraged by how quickly things are changing up here.”

Zappettini said the new apartments will have a community area where people can come together and hang out.

“There is a kitchen, laundry room, the manager’s office, computer lab, so there is a lot of great onsite amenities," said Zappettini. "I have never been shy of saying this is my favorite project ever been built.”

Re-building on the smaller units started this week.

Zappetini said the Paradise Community Village will be completely rebuilt by either October or November in 2021 and that people who are interested in these apartments can head to the CHIPS website under rentals and add your name to the interest list.
