- A concern in the Paradise community is preserving the aesthetic beauty and tranquillity of the area while still allowing for development of privately owned parcels. The focus of development is to be single-family residential development.
- The Paradise area contains vital deer wintering and migration habitat, as well as other species and habitat of concern, such as the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep.
- There is a need to maintain the rural, single-family residential character of the neighborhood while also facilitating the maintenance of a structure’s defensible space for wildland fire protection purposes.
- Recreation access and management are of concern to the residents.
- Residents are interested in providing an improved transportation system that protects and accesses the unique scenic, recreational and environmental resources of the area. Alternative transportation systems, both within the community area and linking the area to other communities in the region, are a major concern.
