Every year, Paradise continues to rebuild better and stronger with more opportunities for businesses and families to thrive. Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far:
Homes rebuilt: 445
Paradise residents and community members spent the 2nd Anniversary of the Camp Fire in remembrance. It was a meaningful day with a daffodil giveaway, sponsored by the Town of Paradise, Adventist Health, and Déjà Vu Gardens Galore Nursery. Local Artist Jess Mercer’s Ridge Wellness Project brought many to submit their letters of hope and well wishes. The pandemic hit just a few months into Year 2 of recovery for the Town, and Paradise continued to move forward with recovery and rebuilding, with over 445 homes receiving a Certificate of Occupancy.
Homes rebuilt: 1106
2021 was a year of continued growth and celebration. Over 1000 single-family and multi-family homes were completed and issued a Certificate of Occupancy, with over 350 businesses calling Paradise home. The hazard tree removal program was completed, and the population continued to grow.
2022 was full of exciting recovery projects, and we made so much progress during our fourth year of rebuilding Paradise. We’re so thankful to all the organizations, residents, and volunteers who’ve been a part of the Town’s recovery.
Here are a few of the highlights we accomplished together:
2023 has been an incredible year of recovery and growth. Since the fire, over 2500 new homes and apartments have been rebuilt, with many families returning to Paradise or choosing the town for a new life for their families.
We completed the infrastructure for a revived Downtown area, and we hope to bring a sewer to the Town in just a few short years. The Town repaving project is underway, making Paradise the only town in the US to have a plan for fully repaving. Every resident now has a water meter, and 20 out of 21 sirens have been installed in the Early Warning Sirens system.
