MAGALIA, Calif. - The Magalia Community Center secured two buildings on the former Paradise Pines Golf Course, bringing them one step closer towards much-needed resources and recreation to the area.

Executive Director Chris Rauen says they have a 4-year lease on the golf course's buildings and parking lot, with an option to buy.

He says they also want to buy the 40-acre course down the road.

They're giving the building a facelift over the next month and Rauen says this is a milestone for the community.

"We worked with the safer corporation to come to an agreement for the use of these buildings and repurpose them from what they were a golf course – which had a lot of history because it was here for 45 years and remaining recreation for the community in an area that was hit so hard from the fire," Rauen said. "These buildings should rightfully not be here after the fire but they are I think they're here for a reason."

One building is about 2,000 square feet of space. Rauen said they'll use the area for weddings, receptions, meetings as well as a resource center for recovery and rebuilding.
