Town Council honors former Paradise Valley mayor

Posted

During a May 26 meeting, the Paradise Valley Town Council honored former mayor Ed Lowry and his wife, Patsy Lowry.

Mayor Bien-Willner issued an official proclamation, recognizing the efforts of the Lowrys over the years.

Ed Lowry has been a proud Paradise Valley resident for more than 60 years; he has served as a Town Magistrate, was elected to Town Council and served three terms as mayor from 1998 to 2004.

According to the proclamation, Lowry led the Town Council through many productive efforts to benefit the community during his time as mayor. These included:

  •  Improving relations with the city of Scottsdale and resolving sanitary waste services;
  •  Major infrastructure projects including undergrounding utilities on major roads;
  •  Improving flood control along Doubletree Ranch Road;
  •  Working to establish the Barry M. Goldwater Memorial in town;
  •  Leading Paradise Valley to become the first community in Arizona to utilize ruberized asphalt, reducing noise pollution.

Mayor Bien-Willner also recognized former “First Lady” of Paradise Valley, Patsy Lowry, who alongside her husband, has supported the town and helped to document and preserve local history through the Historical Advisory Committee.

Former Mayor Lowry thanked the town for his recognition.

“Everyone that has been a part of the town government all deserves the same kind of kind words because we’ve ended up with such a fabulous community, and one of the things that makes it so fabulous is our Historical Advisory Committee because they have done a fantastic job. There is no stone that they won’t unturn,” Lowry said.
