  • Council met on Feb. 4th to consider repealing ordinance 573 which allowed people to live on property before fire debris was cleared.
  • Butte County Public Health has stated that a public health emergency exists in Paradise due to the Fire.
  • FEMA and Cal OES have said that allowing people to live in a public health emergency area will jeopardize the funding which pays for the state debris removal program. Without this funding, the town will not have the resources to remove all the debris.
  • With this information, Town Council voted unanimously to repeal ordinance 573 and approved ordinance 575.
  • Ordinance 575 states that residents may not live on property where a qualifying structure (a structure over 120 sqft) has burned until that debris is removed. If the home remains standing, you may live on your property (either in your home or in an RV). Once debris is removed on your property, you may live on the property, regardless of property size.

Within the Town, the program was run through the town EOC. Structures were evaluated by Cal OES Safety Assessment Program (SAP) evaluators. SAP provides experienced professionals who can quickly evaluate damaged structures, identifying those that are safe for occupancy to which people can return, while marking those that are unsafe or have restricted use. Placards were placed on any standing structure and each should have a placard though it's possible weather may have destroyed some of the placards. If any citizen requires verification, please contact Town Hall at (530) 872-6291.
