LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles County will offer customized workshop sessions to help Woolsey Fire survivors living in unincorporated areas navigate their way through the rebuilding process, it was announced today.
``The process of rebuilding a home lost to a wildfire can feel overwhelming,'' Los Angeles County Public Works Director Mark Pestrella said. ``To assist property owners within unincorporated areas with their rebuilding process, the county is holding a series of free workshops that will provide information and support that is tailored and customized to address each homeowner's unique needs.''
Unincorporated area homeowners can use the service to get free customized guidance on rebuilding topics from experts from several county departments, including Fire, Public Health, Public Works and Regional Planning. Topics that can be addressed during the one-on-one appointments include -- but are not limited to -- information on drafting rebuild plans, identifying required permits and finding qualified contractors.
Rebuilding workshop sessions will be held on March 2, March 16, March 30, April 13 and April 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the One-Stop Center Calabasas District Office, located at 26600 Agoura Road, Suite 110.
