PARADISE, Calif. - Paradise Town Council Member Melissa Schuster says community input is key to rebuilding Paradise the right way.

The Town of Paradise is hosting a series of community meetings in order to not only give people a place they can go to ask questions but also listen to all their concerns.

Schuster says the first community meeting at the CMA Church was a success, with an estimated 700 people filling the venue. 

"It's important for people to not only design their town, but it has to be done in a way that everyone gets their voice, and have a united vision," Schuster said. "So, it's really exciting." 

The next community meeting will be held at the CMA Church on Clark Rd on Tuesday, March 26 at 6 p.m.  Town leaders and the Paradise Irrigation District will be there to discuss the plan for the water system. 

Schuster added that many people have received lump sums of money from FEMA or their insurance companies.  She wants people to know that there are resources available for people who would like help in managing their money.  

"You know, we're hurting, and we tend to say things to ourselves like, 'I need to get away, I deserve a vacation,'" she said. "And before you know it, that sum of money is gone, and you don't have any money to rebuild your life."

Schuster says people can contact the Paradise Small Business Association, SCORE, and 3CORE.
