Bastrop County is starting to look forward once more after the wildfire that happened 18 months ago.
Bastrop County judge Paul Pape said a lot of progress has happened after the fire. In the 1,700 lost homes, 1,212 building permits have already been issued in the last 18 months. Additionally, green trees and new homes can be seen in the Tahitian Village neighborhood after the fire that broke out over the Labor Day weekend in 2011.
Many families have been able to rebuild their homes with help from private donations and government assistance. Pape thinks Bastrop County handled the disaster very well and, while most are optimistic about the future, there is still work to be done.
