PARADISE, Calif. – Efforts to rebuild the iconic “Welcome to Paradise” sign are getting a boost.

Some may remember, the new sign design was chosen in December, after a vote by people who live in Paradise. Chico-based landscape architect Brian Firth designed the sign.
Taken from the old design, the new one includes the slogan "May you find Paradise to be all its name implies" and adds on the words "ridge", "strong" and "resilient".
