• Clark Road Laundromat is now open! 5837 Clark Rd.

• There are 171 businesses open on the ridge according to the Paradise Chamber of Commerce.

• In Case you Missed it: On June 25th, the Town Council voted unanimously to adopt the Long-Term Community Recovery Plan. 

The presentation of community vision included the projects that were previously presented to the public for feedback.  These projects are not all Town-led projects---some projects will be undertaken by other agencies, entities or non-profits (e.g. PID is the lead on repairing the water system.)  The Town Council will have an opportunity to prioritize the town-led projects at its goal setting session in July).  All projects will go before the council at future meetings—some projects will go before the council many times during different phases of the project (e.g. design, engineering, grant approvals, etc.) All projects have different priorities, cost estimates, and proposed funding sources---these are all estimates.
