PARADISE>>The town council has agreed on where they would like to put a new transit center, but the Butte County Association of Governments will have the last say in the matter. At Tuesday evening’s regular meeting, BCAG deputy director Andy Newsum spoke to the matter and how the association would consider the council’s vote when making the decision.

The council agreed that they would like to see the transit center built next to the Paradise Community Park on Black Olive Drive and Birch Street after weighing pros and cons of alternative sites like Skyway and Almond Street.

Newsum agreed that the station constructed on Spencer Avenue has poised problems that could be a concern for…

It’s also long, surprisingly […]…
