REDDING, Calif. - Hundreds of businesses and community leaders gathered at the Redding Civic Auditorium Tuesday afternoon for the 30th-annual State of the City luncheon.

The theme of this year's event was Building Success Through Resiliency.

So it was no surprise that there was a big focus on healing and rebuilding after the Carr Fire.

Redding Chamber of Commerce president Jake Mangas emceed the event and introduced keynote speaker mayor Kristen Schreder who talked about challenges and successes the city has faced in the last year and what's next after the Carr Fire.

“We just got 1.8 million dollars in additional recovery money that we approved last night at the city council,” Schreder said. “And that will go for some infrastructure needs and also some help with some of our businesses, small businesses that we impacted and also some of our programs that address homelessness.”

Schreder also talked about the importance of mentoring the youth of the community.

She said rebuilding is more than just physical structures, it's about rebuilding families and the youth who are the future of businesses, economy and leadership.
