Residents shout fire at Paradise Ranch proposal

A graphic of the Paradise Ranch project is shown, with Canyon Hills Road outlined in red.

An emotional crowd of 60 Carbon Canyon residents objected to a 50-home development called Paradise Ranch that would be built adjacent to their neighborhoods, telling the Planning Commission on Tuesday they feared for their lives in the event of a catastrophic fire.

Paradise Ranch is classified by the City of Chino Hills and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection as a “very high fire hazard area.”

When I contemplated moving here in 1992 we rejected Carbon Canyon for the Fire hazard and the limited ingress and egress.

This building plan is insane.

Oh, and while you are at it planting trees, could you send a crew out to the greenbelt behind our house and properly trim the trees and reduce the 30 year old canopies before the trees fall on our house during a windstorm?

Chino Hills doesn't maintain their trees.
