CHICO, Calif. - Community members weighed on two major topics at a special Chico City Council meeting Wednesday night.
The first topic was centered around the proposal of a trailer park, which would house 250 trailers to provide temporary housing for Camp Fire evacuees off of Eaton Road in North Chico.
A number of neighbors at the meeting said that they would be concerned with traffic in the area.
"I've seen the public describe candidly and articulately describe what the tipping point is in many of their opinions as to where too much of the hospitality burden is being placed on this community, greatly impacting their quality of life," said Mark Orme, city manager for the city of Chico.
Some called for the trailers to be housed at different sites in the town.
"It seems to me that there must be other sites that would serve like Bruce and Skyway," they said. "It's not just an issue of traffic, it is an environmental issue."
The second topic was centered around the proposed location for a debris-sorting site in the Chico at the Old Diamond Company building in the Barber Community.
Crews would bring in hundreds of trucks of burn debris each day into Chico.
Several neighbors and council members said they are not in favor.
"We want to be a partner in this community," said Scott Huber, Chico city council member. "Many of the issues you've raised have allowed us to already make adjustments to how we intend to do this operation."
FEMA has the final say on the issues.
The properties under discussion for both proposals are privately owned and meet zoning requirements.
