Download the Historic Property Recognition Application

In 2018, the Town of Paradise Valley approved the Historic Property Recognition Program.  The program was created as an effort for property owners to voluntarily submit their property for consideration of historic value for the Town.  In order to be considered a historic property, the property must clearly meet established criteria.  Property owners receive a certificate recognizing the importance of the property.  

Historical Advisory Committee Overview

The Historical Advisory Committee was established in 1997 to advise the Town Council on matters pertaining to establishing and maintaining an archival record of the Town of Paradise Valley's History. The Committee compiles and archives historical records and produces appropriate literature to commemorate the Town's major anniversary dates.
