This rebuild is unique to each lot, each home, each family. The situation is fluid and and there are a lot of gears in motion. Contractors and industry professionals need to get, and stay, up to date on current building matters in both the Town and the County. Your best resource is the general communication websites Make it Paradise and Butte County Recovers. Attend meetings and ask questions of the Building Departments. There are also associations that can provide more detailed information for the construction industry and Ridge business. If you are new to the rebuild, get up-to-speed at these websites and talk with builders.
Make It Paradise is the official rebuild website for the Town of Paradise. Here you will find guides and checklists for the rebuilding process, building resources, forms and processes, updates on the Town led Community Recovery Plan, support and connections points, grants & programs, FAQ’s, a newsletter, and history on the recovery process.
