Together—we can make Paradise even better.



WHO WE ARE


 

Paradise Citizens’ Alliance is a non-partisan, diverse group of local citizens dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community.

 

We seek reasoned and well-informed positions on various local, regional, statewide and national issues that we believe may have significant impact on our community.

 

We then share these positions with our community and those in authority in order to influence public policy for the greater benefit of our fellow citizens.






UNTIL NOW...

there’s been no single, non-political group or organization in Paradise taking an in-depth look at our community’s quality of life.

Nor was there an organization independently researching how current community policies and projects address our community’s needs.

Paradise Citizens’ Alliance will spearhead that independent research and then advocate, based on facts, for policies and projects in areas such as these:

  • Local economy
  • Schools
  • Public safety
  • Health services
  • Housing
  • Infrastructure (including technology)
  • Transportation
  • Leisure and recreation
  • Community culture
  • Support services for adults, youth, seniors and families




Quality of Life Advocacy Positions (to date):

As a follow-up to the results from our community-wide, quality of life survey in which a significant majority of respondents identified the lack of pedestrian sidewalks as a major quality of life concern, the Paradise Citizensʼ Alliance wrote letters of support for three separate grant funded sidewalk projects that the Town of Paradise has applied for to the State.

After study and analysis of all the information and data available, including arguments for and against associated with the Townʼs proposed Skyway Downtown Safety Improvement Project, the Paradise Citizenʼs Alliance submitted a letter of support endorsing the project. In endorsing the project, the Alliance stated, “...we canʼt think of a more worthy infrastructure project for improving the quality of life in Paradise than a project that seeks to reduce the alarmingly high number of injury collisions and fatalities that have occurred over the last ten years in this stretch of the Skyway running through the Downtown; and whose overriding objective is to improve the personal safety of our citizens, whether as motorists or as pedestrians.”
