Since I became involved in town government three years ago, I’ve been on a mission to increase communications with our residents.
Whether it is formal public noticing about land use, a helpful resident brochure, or the town website, you deserve timely, relevant information.
For a fiscally conservative, low-government town, we already do a good job and continue to make improvements — including the development of a weekly email newsletter published by town staff.
Created early this year, the weekly email newsletter describes road closures for the upcoming week, any updates on significant special use permit activities (Ritz-Carlton and Smoketree) and periodic crime statistics to name a few topics.
The weekly email newsletter recently invited residents to a free pandemic stress relief program financed by our Community Services Fund.
In addition to being informative, town staff keeps it short and witty. To sign-up to receive the weekly email newsletter, you can opt-in here or email email@example.com or call the Town Manager’s office at 480-348-3690.
The town will not share your information and you can opt-out anytime.
The town’s weekly email newsletter is in addition to the town’s emergency notification and information system: AlertPV available on the town’s website: https://www.paradisevalleyaz.gov/alertpv
