NEWS THIS WEEK:

  • The Town held the first monthly Community Meeting on August 6th. These meetings will be held the first Tuesday of every month. Reports included local agencies: PID, PUSD, PG&E, Butte County, Butte 211, Vector Control, Del Oro, Paradise Police Department, and The Chamber of Commerce. The event gave the community a venue to hear information from each agency directly. If you missed it and would like to hear the updates there is a Facebook Live available https://bit.ly/2M4ToB2 and https://bit.ly/31lU3By (there was a technical difficulty and was broken into two parts) 

  • A PG&E contractor is trenching along the Skyway from Chico up to the former Tuscan Ridge Golf Club to provide underground electric and communication lines for a worker housing site. Work is expected to continue through mid-September in the south shoulder of eastbound Skyway. Both lanes of eastbound traffic will remain open with only the shoulder closed at work locations. Motorists are advised to be aware of workers and equipment working on the shoulder. For about a week, crews will need to close one lane on the Skyway but will do so at night when traffic is light. The week will be scheduled as the project progresses.

  • Team Rubicon will be coming to the area and falling trees at properties with structures where people are residing. They will begin in the southern portion of Magalia and the northern area of Paradise to consolidate their teams for efficiency. They will come back at a later date (not set) for limbing and removal of those trees. If you are interested please email them at R9info@TeamRubiconUSA.org or by phone at 213-712-6200. Please also include what Zone you’re in on the ROE to help organize the sign-ups.

  • Paradise Community Dinners are held every Thursday at the Paradise Alliance Church, 6491 Clark Rd. Dinner is free and open to anyone. Come and share a meal with your community. 

  • Thursday, August 15th is the first day of school for Paradise students! (Pictures provided by PUSD)
