|Proposed Historic Neighborhood Overlay|
The Paradise Town Board unanimously recommended approval of the Paradise Palms I bid to become the first neighborhood within unincorporated Clark County to apply for the Historic Neighborhood Overlay designation. A presentation was made by the Michelle Larime of the Nevada Preservation Foundation highlighting the history, significance and unique architecture that sets Paradise Palms above the rest. Paradise Town Board Members Jon Wardlaw, John Williams, Robert Orgill, Bart Donovan and Chair Susan Phillip all recognized the commitment and time that has been invested in this process, and complimented the willingness and desire of the community to be the first in the County to commit to historic preservation. The Town Board voted 5-0 to recommend approval to the Board of Clark County Commissioners, with the final step in the journey being final approval at the February 8th Clark County Board of Commissioners meeting.

From the Nevada Preservation Foundation Website:
The Nevada Preservation Foundation was hired by the Paradise Palms Neighborhood Organization to gain a local listing as a historic neighborhood with Clark County. The entire Paradise Palms residential development is made up of approximately 1,000 homes and is located both north and south of Desert Inn Road between Maryland Parkway and Eastern Ave. In order to make this project more manageable, the development has been divided into different areas, determined by historic features and boundaries that provide a logical way in which to divide the subdivision. Over the next several years, we will be moving through each area one by one, and work with the neighborhood to give each of these areas the opportunity to be named a Historic Neighborhood.
