Together—we can make Paradise even better.



Paradise Citizens’ Alliance is a non-partisan, diverse group of local citizens dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community.


We seek reasoned and well-informed positions on various local, regional, statewide and national issues that we believe may have significant impact on our community.


We then share these positions with our community and those in authority in order to influence public policy for the greater benefit of our fellow citizens.


there’s been no single, non-political group or organization in Paradise taking an in-depth look at our community’s quality of life.

Nor was there an organization independently researching how current community policies and projects address our community’s needs.

Paradise Citizens’ Alliance will spearhead that independent research and then advocate, based on facts, for policies and projects in areas such as these:

  • Local economy
  • Schools
  • Public safety
  • Health services
  • Housing
  • Infrastructure (including technology)
  • Transportation
  • Leisure and recreation
  • Community culture
  • Support services for adults, youth, seniors and families

First Project: Results from "Paradise Speaks" survey

The starting point for Paradise Citizens’ Alliance was a comprehensive, “Speak up for Paradise” community survey conducted in late 2013. The organization’s focus and work will be based on what our community’s residents have identified as their major quality of life concerns.

Paradise Citizens' Alliance presented the results at a community gathering in April. To view the presentation of the survey results on YouTube click here. To view a PDF summary of the survey results, click here.

Second Project: Student Entrepreneurship Program

The Paradise Citizens' Alliance is working with and supporting the efforts of the Paradise Unified School District to establish a Student Entrepreneurship Program at Paradise High that will be affiliated with the international Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship (SAGE) Program based at Chico State.
