Chico Regional Airport

A vibrant part of the community
The City of Chico is committed to the return of commercial air service.  Such service will provide a closer airport for those living in the three-county surrounding area, save on gas and overnight stays, and it generate local business growth and economic activity.  In addition, the airport currently supports regional emergency services and a busy general aviation population.

Street Sweeping & Leaf Collection

Every year, street sweeping helps keep our streets, storm drains, and waterways clean and safe by removing over 5,000 cubic yards of material from the roadway. Our leaf collection program collects and recycles all leaves for City residents during the fall and winter leaf pick-up season.


Street Trees

Chico is known as the “City of Trees,” with a robust urban forest history that began with John Bidwell. From how to care for your trees to what to do if you need one removed, we’ve got our Tree City USA covered.

Air monitoring station

Weather & Air Quality

On July 27, 2021, the City of Chico installed a Purple Air monitoring station and RainWise weather station that report real-time weather data from the downtown area.
The stations are installed on top of the Fred Davis Municipal Center (City Hall) and allow continuous monitoring of weather conditions during the fire season. This data helps residents make the best health choices when air pollution levels are at unsafe levels. This project was funded by the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) Community Air Protection (CAP) Support Grant.
