PARADISE, Calif.- A public workshop was held on Friday in Paradise at the Paradise Alliance Church to discuss rebuilding the town.
Nearly 700 people from the community gathered to share the visions they have for the town's future.
Urban Design Associates were hired by the town council to create a blueprint for rebuilding.
Managing principle, Barry Long, organized the workshop but said the meeting was mostly community driven.
"We heard in the report outs from each of the facilitated groups where we listened to residents broad consensus on many issues not every issue but many issues and that's important that the community goes forward with the unified vision," Long said.
Community members were broken into large groups where they discussed the town's strengths and weaknesses both before and after the fire. At the end of the activity, group leaders voiced those concerns.
The three main questions that were addressed in the meeting were:
What are Paradise's strengths?
What are Paradise's weaknesses?
What are our opportunities as a result of the disaster?
