Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Where can individuals and families in need find things like clothing, household goods, toiletries, food, fans, etc.? 

Answer: The best place for individuals and families to get assistance is through the Disaster Case Management Services that have been set up specifically for Camp Fire Survivors. People can access this service in person at the Butte County Employment Center located at 2445 Carmichael Dr., Chico. The service is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Question: What is going to happen at the June 25 meeting? 

Answer: The meeting on June 25 will be focused on the community vision for the long-term recovery. Through the visioning process that began in February, and was facilitated by the planning consultant Urban Design Associates, 40 recovery projects were identified for long term recovery.

The town council will consider the plan and give direction on whether to move forward. Right now, the plan and the projects are general in nature, with details on each project to be worked out as recovery continues. These details will be presented in public and go through a public input process before any final decisions are made.

Question: Is there any way to ensure that CC&R’s are maintained in an area where they exist?

Answer: CC&R’s are rules and guidelines that communities may choose to impose on themselves. Not all communities have CC&R’s. The Town of Paradise does not enforce CC&R’s, enforcement is usually spelled out within the CC&R document and is the responsibility of a community board or group identified through the CC&R’s.
