The Wildland-Urban Interface and Income Class in Paradise, California

[Midterm Project] The wildland-urban interface (or WUI) has been perceived in previous literature to consist of a generally wealthy population.

Due to the WUI’s vulnerability to wildfires, this project has implications for lower income communities within the WUI in terms of resource restrictions for wildfire preparation and rebuilding post-wildfire.
