  • Broadband Feasibility Study: Paradise’s Broadband Feasibility Study was presented to Town Council by the Geographical
    Information Center (GIC) at Chico State Enterprises. The Study examines the demand and viability of installing high-speed broadband infrastructure within the Town. The Council accepted and authorized staff to move forward on a Request for Information (RFI) to gage private sector interest in the project. This study was funded in part by the Butte Strong Fund.

  • SURVEY: Disaster Housing Assistance Survey for Eligible Homeowners: ReCoverCA wants to help eligible homeowners repair or rebuild their homes affected by the Camp Fire. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is pleased to announce the availability of the 2018 Disaster Housing Assistance Survey for victims of the 2018 wildfire disasters. If you or someone you know is interested in rebuilding a singlefamily home or replacing a manufactured home as a result of a 2017 or 2018 qualifying disaster, ReCoverCA may be able to help.
  • Butte County Fire Safe Council Brings Grazing to the Ridge for Fire Safety: Goats began grazing for fuels reduction on March 3, 2021 along the West Branch in Paradise to improve forest health and wildfire safety for homeowners and landowners. The work is being conducted through the Butte County Fire Safe Council (BCFSC), a local non-profit organization.
    The grazing being conducted in Paradise is actively being managed by the BCFSC as a fuels
    reduction and restoration project post Camp Fire. The grazing is being implemented using a local herder that utilizes goats and sheep to reduce hazardous regrowing vegetation that poses a threat in future fires and prepares the project area for replanting of trees in the Spring of 2021. The herds will be used to remove hazardous fuels on the East side of the Town of Paradise along Mountain View Dr and adjacent to Shay Lane stretching 1.15 miles, 100ft wide. As community members in Paradise rebuild and recover from the Camp Fire, grazing operations such as these will help protect them from the threat of future fires. These efforts utilizing grazing coincide with various restoration and fuels reduction projects the Butte County Fire Safe Council is conducting throughout Magalia, and the Camp Fire footprint. Funding for these projects provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as part of the California Climate Investments Program, the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, and My Sierra Woods. For more information, click here.
