Paradise Valley AZ was created out of unincorporated Maricopa County by property owners who did not want to be part of either Phoenix or Scottsdale. They did not want to be annexed by either city. Why? Because they wanted to keep the larger lots, and keep out commercial businesses from being in their (area) now a town. To note when you go from one to the other Paradise Valley has some old monument signs you will see as you enter the Town. Tatum & Shea, coming in from the east on McDonald or Cheney, and many other places. These will be replaced with the newer entryway signs one sees driving eastbound on Lincoln, coming in from the Biltmore area at 32nd Street & Lincoln.
The old entry way signs have an image of Camelback Mountain on the background, with “Welcome to Paradise Valley.” They do look dated and quaint. The Town has recognized this for years and now has budgeted to replace the old signs. The new signs are more a western contemporary “ranch” look with a cube of rocks in a rusted metal wire. On top of the rocks is a large sheet of rusting steel with “Welcome” on the top line and “Town of Paradise Valley” on the bottom line (see below). A sleeker, more modern look combined with elements of the old west. A style similar to the theme at DC Ranch’s Market Street, and throughout much of DC Ranch in N Scottsdale.
A rendering is below, and for the real deal, one can see it at the SE corner of 32nd Street & Lincoln. Soon these will also be seen at:
Invergordon (64th Street) & Mountain View Roads (Coming in south on 64th street from Shea)
Shea Boulevard at Tatum Boulevard and also at 52nd Street.
Doubletree Ranch Road at Tatum Boulevard (next to Tesseract School) and at Scottsdale Road (coming in from Gainey Ranch)
