Rebuilding Butte

The Camp Fire Long Term Recovery Group Unmet Needs Roundtable & the Upper Ridge Community Council has gathered input from the outlying areas affected by the Camp Fire to inform and guide the recovery process. We hosted 3 public listening events, with our goal being to find unmet needs that still exist, as well as find out where things can be done, in order to help articulate the needs of the Concow, Magalia, and Canyon communities to the various agencies desiring to help. In Step 1 (as outlined below). through input from individuals in small listening groups facilitated by collaboration expert Dr. Jonathan “Joc” Clark, we identified opportunities for addressing in the long-term recovery.
