Plenge: voters decide on Town of Paradise Valley’s fate

The Town of Paradise Valley was incorporated in 1961 by people who shared a preference for a low density residential community. They believed that there were enough grocery stores and restaurants etc. nearby to satisfy the need for more commercial facilities. They preferred an open space style of living. Those early residents eschewed all unnecessary government interference including property taxes. Fifty-five years later, few of those founding fathers still live in the Town of Paradise Valley.
