Economist to examine Camp Fire, Carr Fire impacts

CHICO — Six months to the date after the Camp Fire, and a little longer since Redding’s Carr Fire, there are indicators of what’s happening with and to the impacted economies.
Economist Robert Eyler has been observing trends and numbers coming out of Butte and Shasta counties. He’s in tune because of what’s happened in his own backyard.
Eyler lives in Sonoma County and is an economist with Sonoma State University. He also has a consulting economics business. In 2017, Sonoma and Napa counties, along with many others, experienced devastating wildfires that, at the time, were the costliest on record.
With what he’s learned from that front-row seat and other economic observations, Eyler will talk about what’s happened and what’s ahead after the Camp Fire in Paradise and the Carr Fire in Redding.
“Impact North State: An Economic Update and Outlook Post-Camp and Carr Fires” will be 9 a.m. to noon May 9 at the Chico Community Center, 545 Vallombrosa Ave. The cost is $30, which includes a continental breakfast.
The Carr Fire struck the Redding area in August 2018, followed by the Camp Fire on Nov. 8 that destroyed Paradise and damaged other communities in November. Its impact on Chico and other communities in Butte County are also noted.
Eyler will provide a perspective of critical indicators to watch during recovery, along with data on the local economy. He will also cover state and national trends, along with stages of recovery.
Updates from local leaders will round out the morning, followed by questions and answers.
Reservations can be made now at at  www.regonline.com/impactnorthstate.
North State Planning and Development Collective at Chico State University is the umbrella organization for the Center for Economic Development.
