SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted and passed an ordinance that will provide relief to those rebuilding homes after the Carr Fire.

The allows some residents to rebuild their homes without the added cost of new state and federal housing regulations. This allows them to rebuild under old standards, which can make construction costs more affordable for families. 

The homes must be brought up to modern code structurally as well as have plumbing and electric systems that are in line with regulation. But homeowners will now be able to forgo so modern regulations such as energy saving materials that are mandated when building homes today and are a lot more expensive. 

This ordinance is specifically for residents that are in unincorporated areas of Shasta County. The city of Redding falls under the city's jurisdiction, and are not affected by this ordinance.
