Q: Why is the Town requiring those who are rebuilding to get their land surveyed?

A: Before the Camp Fire, the Town did not require surveys because most of development was part of existing subdivisions or individual properties in existing neighborhoods with agreed upon or prescribed property lines based on existing development. The Town now is requiring lot line certification after the fire to protect the property rights of all land owners by ensuring that building setback requirements, as adopted in the Paradise Municipal Code, are being enforced.
