Chico City Council Reconsiders Simplicity Village

Tuesday night, Chico City Council will meet to reconsider building tiny homes that would be available for survivors of the Camp Fire. The council first approved Simplicity Village last month as transitional housing. However, it rejected the use of land on Notre Dame Boulevard for the project. Now, all of that will be reconsidered by the council. 

Chico City Council to Consider Low-Barrier Shelter

Another item the council will consider is opening a 24-hour low-barrier shelter. Council members say the city's current shelters offer fewer than 300 beds on any given night. Given the rise in need, council members want to consider a Low-Barrier Shelter to offer up to 200 additional beds. The meeting is Tuesday night at 6 p.m. in the Chico City Council chambers.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
