Temporary Housing for Camp Fire Survivors May be Built in Chico

A temporary housing project has been proposed to shelter victims of the Paradise, CA Camp Fire that raged through Butte County in November 2018. 48 furnished one to three bedroom homes are proposed to be built on a 13-acre plot of land located at Hegan Lane Business Park in Chico. The temporary housing project would take four months to construct, and tenants would be eligible to reside there for up to two years.

The proposal aims to maintain the Butte County community by providing housing to survivors. “Some people have given up and I know folks who have moved to Austin or Oregon or Atlanta. And these are people we’re losing from the economy, losing from our community,” said Nathaniel Perry, a longtime Chico resident.
