Paradise Valley is located at the entrance of Shavers Valley, an unincorporated area of Eastern Riverside County. The project is envisioned as a special setting for a new town community that will enhance the region’s economy and provide jobs and housing for a growing population.

Four foundations


Meeting resident needs within the community

  • A compact and complete community that is fiscally self-sufficient, and meets day-to-day resident needs on-site
  • Provides a live-work, walkable community comprised of six villages, each with a sense of place and identity
  • Every home is less than a quarter-mile from parks and trails to encourage pedestrian and alternative modes of transport—minimizing the need to drive

Respecting the sensitive desert environment

  • Design embraces and honors the desert setting’s natural elements, colors and landscape
  • Incorporates leading-edge design features to minimize environmental impacts and maintains a fixed and permanent boundary with on-site setbacks to protect sensitive species and habitats
  • Will contribute, preserve and protect more than 21,000 acres of desert landscape, natural habitat and trails in perpetuity

Adhering to a thoughtful public process

  • Driven by Riverside County’s General Plan and the Vision of the Eastern Coachella Valley Area Plan
  • Plans developed with a multi-disciplinary design approach with industry leading experts
  • Open, transparent process with multiple agencies and jurisdictions to foster communication
  • Rigorously follows the process outlined in the Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan

Generating long-term regional benefits

  • Will create thousands of permanent, family-supporting jobs
  • Provides a diverse mix of single-family and multi-family housing options
  • Creates millions in additional tax revenue for County services available for other communities
  • On-site jobs created will provide employment opportunities for up to 84% of Paradise Valley residents who desire to work
