Town of Paradise Weekly Recovery Update 05-08-2019

Message from Mayor Jody Jones:

Today, May 8, 2019, it has been 6 months since the Camp Fire ignited and changed our lives forever. Since that day, we have had to face challenges and heartbreak in ways we never thought possible. We have also made great strides as our community has come together to create a new vision for Paradise. We are removing the wreckage from our Town, knowing it is all that remains of once treasured possessions and memories. We are rebuilding, recognizing it will be a long time before things will feel normal again. But through it all, Paradisians have found our community to be the one thing the fire couldn’t touch. We will rebuild, we will move forward and create Paradise to be all the name implies.
