Our Paducah is a vision for a place where we want to live, grow, work and play – but that has to involve you, the citizens that make us who we are. So we want to make sure you have all the resources you need to stay involved, no matter what you’re interested in.

Get in touch with your representatives or other city departments to see how you can put boots on the ground, whether that means getting involved with road cleanups, park renovations or one of our annual festivals.



“I am a doer. I love to think and plan, BUT there is no trying - you either do or you don’t. Let’s start taking some real action.”


“I would love to see Paducah expand by bringing in newer businesses, whether they be restaurants, boutiques, etc.”


“I believe that diversity should be a part of our day-to-day operations, not just something we ‘celebrate’.”


“I love to see currently declining neighborhoods become positive, beautiful places that positive things are happening in.”
