The Town of Paradise has opened the doors of its Building Resiliency Center (BRC) to address the needs of residents of
Butte County impacted by the devastating Camp Fire of November 2018. The BRC, or “Brick” as it’s been nicknamed, hosts representatives from different State, Federal and local agencies under one roof making it easier and faster for residents to get help with multiple issues and concerns. It is, essentially, a one-stop-shop for residents, investors, or new property owners contemplating building or already intending to rebuild in Paradise and the surrounding area.
The BRC provides residents with the opportunity to talk face-to-face with experts to get questions answered on the spot. Specifically, representatives from the Town of Paradise, Butte County, Cal OES, the State Licensing Board, PG&E and several other agencies are available during various days of the week to answer questions and to process permits and forms. In addition, resources are available to assist with financing and grant applications as well as representatives of the Housing Advocacy Center. Rebuild Advocates are also offering their services free-of-charge to assist with rebuilding, insurance and finances. The center’s hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. Follow the Town of Paradise on Facebook for the current schedule and availability of all representatives.
The building which houses the BRC, was donated to the town by Bank of America. The structure sustained only minor roof damage during the Camp Fire, but has since been repaired and undergone improvements. The BRC is located at 6295 Skyway in Paradise, between Elliott Road and Pearson Road. Go to makeitparadise.org or buttecountyrecovers.org for more information.
