Another successful Paradise Palms Docomomo Tour day is in the books! In 2014 Paradise Palms Las Vegas became the first organization in Nevada to partner with Docomomo US participating in it's annual National Tour Day, held every second weekend of October. We'd like to express our sincerest thanks to all of our guests, volunteers and hosts who made the day a success! Special thanks to @ModernVegas for all the great photographs.

On Wednesday, September 1, 2021 Paradise Palms became the first neighborhood in Southern Nevada to place neighborhood sign toppers above the street signs within the community. Neighbors joined Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom and former County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani for the unveiling, which took place at the corner of Seneca Drive and Dakota Way.

The sign toppers will be placed at 27 intersections by Clark County Public Works throughout the historic-designated portion of the community, with work complete by mid-September. The signs will help foster neighborhood identity, placemaking, and educate new homeowners about the presence of the Historic District. As other portions of our community are adopted into the Historic Overlay, additional signs will be installed.
The signs were 100% community-driven, designed by former Paradise Palms resident Shramek Art and funded by a grass-roots community effort utilizing donations, GoFundMe, and proceeds from our annual neighborhood Docomomo tour. Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom and the Clark County Public Works donated the labor for the installation.
Paradise Palms extends its thanks to each and every donor who help fund the project, all the neighbors for giving such a great turnout taking the time out of their day and work schedules to attend, Commissioner Tick Segerblom and his staff, former Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani, Clark County Public Works, Shramek Art for designing the signs, and Affordable Striping for manufacturing the signs.
