CHICO, Calif. - The long-term impacts of the Camp Fire are yet to be discovered for local businesses.

For now, the Chico Chamber of Commerce is working to offer some normalcy to the business community.

From sharing office workspace with members of the Paradise Ridge Chamber, to still hosting its 81st annual dinner and awards event,  there is now a primary chamber goal as businesses navigate a post-Camp Fire landscape. 

"To make sure the business in both Paradise and Chico know that we are here, we are going to recover from this and we are going to be stronger," said Kelsey Torres, interim president and CEO of the Chico Chamber of Commerce. 

Part of that strength is using the annual awards banquet to honor first responders, she said. 

"It was our way of setting the tone as an organization and to the business community that we are still here, that we are going to recover and we wanted to honor those who have been working tirelessly since Nov. 8 to keep us going," Torres said. 

She also reflected on the concerns the chamber hears most from the businesses in the community. 

"Rebuilding Paradise," she said. "Housing is a huge concern and losing the workforce because they're not able to find an adequate place to live for their families."

She said that the legislative body is actively working to address the issues presented by businesses in the community.
