The Downtown Paradise Safety Project aims to substantially increase motorist and pedestrian safety along Skyway between Vista Way and Elliott Road, primarily within the Downtown corridor of Pearson Road and Elliott Road. The one-million dollar project is grant funded through the Highway Safety Improvement Program administered by the California Department of Transportation with a local 10% matching commitment. This grant was awarded to the Town of Paradise in October of 2012 and approved by Town Council in April 2013.

2014 Burn Season and Drought Info


Burn Season Status:

The Town of Paradise is issuing residential burn permits to area residents for the 2014 burn season.  Recent rains have reduced the fire threat and we anticipate permitting burning throughout the spring burn season March 1, 2014 through May 31, 2014.  Forest fuels remain unseasonably dry however due to prolonged drought.  The Fire Chief will monitor conditions to ensure it is reasonably safe to burn, and if it becomes necessary suspend burning.

Prior to burning residents are required to obtain a burn permit from the Town.  Residents must also call the residential burn line listed on the permit each day prior to burning to ensure that it is a permissible burn day.  Residents should read and follow the terms of their permit to ensure burning is conducted safely and with the least impact to neighbors; failure to comply with the terms of the permit may result in a citation and the cost of fire department response.
