Posted: Apr 17, 2019 7:31 PM

Paaradise, Calif. - Paradise Mayor Jody Jones says nearly 900 lots have been cleared of Camp Fire debris and she's encouraging people to take part in the process of rebuilding their town. 

Thursday, April 18th marks another step forward in that process, with two meetings. Urban Design Associates, the Town's Planning Consultant, is heading up the process of guiding the vision for the future of Paradise. At the meetings it will share the results of what has come out of recent listening sessions and surveys. The presentation will include artist renditions of potential projects.

Mayor Jody Jones says, "You Know it's going to be the way residents want it to be, so input is really important. And all of their input will go into the Consultant's final report that the council will be voting on."

The meetings Thursday will run from 4 - 6 p.m. and from 7 - 9 p.m. They will be the same, so Jones says you only need to attend one. They are being held at the Paradise Alliance Church at 6491 Clark Road.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to get a survey on my property to sell it? What about a septic inspection?
A: No, a survey may be required to build on a property, but it is not required to sell it. You do not need to get a septic inspection if you sell your lot (without a standing home). The septic inspection would become necessary when you or a new buyer decides to build.

Q: Do I have to get a survey on my property to rebuild?
A: It depends on the specific property. Check with the Town of Paradise building department at (530) 872-6291 or in person at 5555 Skyway for your specific property information.

Q: Is there any assistance for tree removal on private property?
A: We are working on it! Right now, trees on private property are the responsibility of the property owner, however we know that there are many trees that need to be removed and it's an expensive aspect of recovery. The Town is actively working on getting funding to help residents with the cost of tree removal. Stay tuned.
