Pace: Paradise Valley Reinvigorates Its Mountain Preservation Trust

Over 240 acres worth over $100 million dollars.

Civic leaders of Paradise Valley have made important progress to preserve mountain views and open space that are integral to the residential and resort community.

Since 1997, Paradise Valley had Mummy Mountain Trust, which focused on preserving land primarily in the higher elevations of Mummy Mountain. Now, the trust has a new name and a new logo.

The new name is Paradise Valley Mountain Preservation Trust (PVMPT), which reflects its mission of preserving the natural landscape, desert plants, wildlife and scenic beauty of Camelback Mountain, Mummy Mountain, and the Eastern extension of Phoenix’s North Mountain Preserve.

PVMPT Chairman Fred Pakis is proud of what the trust has accomplished to date as he explained, “during the past 20 years, the trust has preserved 240 acres to ensure that the land will remain in its natural condition.” He added, “The Trust is working to add more land to the Trust to continue this thoughtful legacy that will benefit generations to come.”
