Those who drive through paradise now have the opportunity to report safety concerns on the roads online to the Public Works Department.

Through a $250,000 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.

"Our motorists are our eyes out in the field. They are our experts driving these roads everyday, to and from home and work, their commutes. So this website allows them to put that exact safety concern on a map," said Marc Mattox, Paradise Public Works Director.

Residents may visit http://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.

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.
