Paradise plans rebuild

Launching a series of “listening sessions” on how to rebuild from the Camp Fire, the Paradise Town Council will hold a special meeting Friday morning (Feb. 22) with residents and its long-term planning consultant.

The two-hour workshop, which starts at 10 a.m. at Paradise Alliance Church (6491 Clark Road), will include small-group discussions on the town’s future. Urban Design Associates will incorporate ideas from this and upcoming sessions into planning proposals.

Meanwhile, Mayor Jody Jones told the CN&R that she met last week with federal officials about securing funds for a sewer line in the business district. She characterized the meeting as “very productive” and said via email, “I’m very encouraged.”
