A 40 foot cedar tree along Paradise Bay was precariously close to falling across the road and could have taken out the electric, telephone and cable lines that are above ground at that location. Residents voiced their concern about this situation to the PLVC Utilities Committee in February. It appeared that the widening of Paradise Bay Road last year resulted in the hillside bank being close to the base of the tree. Determining who owned the property and the tree took a little time, but eventually, Jefferson County determined that they should take down the tree. It was removed on May 21st.
