PARADISE, Calif. - The Paradise Town Council will hold a special meeting on Monday, Feb. 4 at 8 a.m. to amend and possibly rescind Urgency Housing Ordinance 573.
The town council passed the ordinance in hopes of alleviating the critical housing shortage after the Camp Fire. However, the ordinance has raised concerns in recent days due to health and safety measures.
According to Butte County Health, residing in areas within the disaster area has not been cleared as safe. Due to the safety concerns, the ordinance could jeopardize federal funding for Camp Fire disaster relief.
The town and county are working with CalOES to prioritize removal for properties where temporary power pole permits have been issued. They are also looking for acceptable sites for the temporary relocation of recreational vehicles during the debris clean up.
The meeting will be held at the Paradise Town Hall (5555 Skyway Rd., Paradise) on Monday, Feb. 4 at 8 a.m.
