Town of Paradise

Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)

The Town of Paradise has been a U.S. Department of Housing and Development (HUD) entitlement city since 1994.  HUD awards grants to entitlement community grantees to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

Entitlement communities develop their own programs and funding priorities. However, grantees must give maximum feasible priority to activities which benefit low and moderate income persons. A grantee may also carry out activities which aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight.  Additionally, grantees may fund activities when the grantee certifies that the activities meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs. CDBG funds may not be used for activities which do not meet these broad national objectives.

HUD determines the amount of each entitlement grant by a statutory dual formula which uses several objective measures of community needs, including the extent of poverty, population, housing overcrowding, age of housing and population growth lag in relationship to other metropolitan areas.

ADA Transition Plan

The passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) produced a comprehensive package of civil rights protections for persons with disabilities. This law provides civil rights protections for both employment related issues and for the provisions of goods and services to persons with disabilities. Title II of the ADA lists the specific requirements that apply to public entities, such as state or local governments.  The documentation of an ADA Self Evaluation and Transition Plan is required to comply with Title II of the ADA. The intent and purpose of an ADA Self Evaluation Plan is for a public entity to identify issues and conditions that could impact qualified individuals with disabilities. The intent and purpose of a Transition Plan is to set forth a written process and method whereby the public entity can modify, replace, or remove identified ADA compliance issues and conditions over time.

The Town of Paradise has prepared an ADA Self Evaluation and Transition Plan in compliance with Title II of the ADA. The Plan was adopted by Town Council on July 14, 2015. The complete ADA Self Evaluation & Transition Plan is available for download below. Alternate formats are available upon request.

Future updates to the Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan will be performed on an ongoing basis as new regulations are adopted and as existing public right-of-way conditions change.

If you have any questions relating to ADA and the Public Right of Way, please contact Joanna Gutierrez, ADA Coordinator, at (530) 872-6291 x101 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Parade of Flags

                                                                                                            Photo by Glenn Harrington

As tribute to our veterans and armed forces, 11 different organizations throughout the Paradise Ridge donate their time to put 1,100 flags along Skyway an Elliot Road.  It is a beautiful and patriotic sight.  Three times a year, Memorial Day, Veteran's Day, and the 4th of July the flags can be seen as you drive or walk along the Skyway and Elliot Roads.  The flags are out, weather permitting, from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.
