Town of Paradise

‘Safe Streets for Paradise’ Formally Launches Today

 Paradise, CA: Through a state-funded grant, the Town of Paradise has officially launched the ‘Safe Streets for Paradise’ campaign – an effort to evaluate roadway safety across selected corridors while soliciting public feedback on what is viewed as top safety concerns across all Paradise roadways. The campaign represents a multi-faceted approach to analyze historical collision data and proactively evaluate safety concerns, enabling the Town to better compete for State and Federal safety grant opportunities.

Residents may visit www.safestreetsforparadise.com to review the overall project effort in addition to providing site-specific feedback using an interactive mapping and comment tool. This tool allows residents to place their respective concerns spatially on the map where the condition exists, allowing for a comprehensive review by the project team.

The Safe Streets for Paradise effort also involves garnering input from community leaders and general public. On December 14, 2017 at Sierra Hall (6165 Center Street, Paradise) the Town of Paradise will be hosting two meetings, each with a focus of identifying and prioritizing community needs as it relates to roadway safety. The first meeting at 1:00 PM is targeted for community leaders and stakeholders. The second meeting will be an open, drop-in workshop between 4:00– 6:00 PM, providing residents an opportunity to hear an overview of historical crash patterns and trends, provide input about safety concerns and learn about some of the types of projects which could be constructed to improve conditions.

Following completion of the public input portion of the project, a final community meeting will be scheduled in early 2018 to review identified projects and discuss priorities for future grant applications.

Funding for this effort is provided by the California Department of Transportation, Highway Safety Improvement Program.
