BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – The Camp Fire worker base camp on the Skyway is coming down.
Chris McSwain with Cal Recycle said the contract to use the Tuscan Ridge Golf Course expired on Jan. 31.
Below is a full statement from Chris McSwain:
“A top priority of the Camp Fire debris clean-up was making sure the project did not negatively impact the availability of housing for fire survivors. In coordination with the Governor's Office of Emergency Services, Cal Recycle directed ECC and SPSG to mobilize workforce housing for debris removal contractors and subcontractors through Jan. 31, 2020. In keeping with the terms of the debris removal housing contract, the debris removal housing operators will demobilize these camps. The long-term prospects for these properties are in the hands of the contractors and their subcontractors.”
The camps housed 1,500 debris removal contractors during Camp Fire recovery.
The owners of the property are trying to sell it for $60 million.
Cal Recycle said the base camp went up to keep worker housing needs from making it even tougher for fire survivors to find homes.
