  • We’ve had a few more businesses opening in Paradise. Welcome, Nic’s Café (coming very soon) and Plumbline Plumbing. We are happy to have you!

  • The Town is on track to receive 500 building permit applications by the end of the year!  Initially, we estimated we would receive about 200 applications by December 31st.  We are very encouraged by the numbers we are seeing. 

  • The Town of Paradise hosted its second monthly Community Information Meeting on Tuesday, September 3rd at 6 pm at Paradise Alliance Church. This was an opportunity for the community to hear directly from agencies working to rebuild the community. This allows for the most up-to-date information to be presented to the community. We encourage all Camp Fire survivors to join us, either in person or online on the Town of Paradise Facebook page. If you missed it, there is a link to the Facebook Live

  • While the Town works with NRWS, Cal OES, Cal Fire and other agencies to reopen the green waste facility on American Way, the Neal Road Landfill is a good option for green waste. There is a separate entrance for non-commercial trucks, and the line isn’t too long if you go before noon.  The Town is getting very close to a solution that will allow us to reopen the green waste facility in Town, stay tuned!

  • The Town is working on abating properties that have not signed up for debris removal.  There are less than 100 properties that didn’t sign up for either the State program or the alternative program through the County.  After sending courtesy notices and making numerous phone calls to the property owners, the Town has now begun the process through the courts to remove the debris on the properties.  

  • Calling all contractors! We would like to streamline the process of connecting property owners to builders by working with Rebuild Paradise on a master plan library. We would love your input and ideas, as well as to learn the challenges you are facing.  How can we help you to rebuild Paradise? Email or call (530) 872-6291  x122.  

  • 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.
