The 1990s

A group of parents successfully obtain special financing through the Underwood Amendment to build a new Palisade High School west of Palisade on G Road. The Chamber of Commerce and Town of Palisade successfully raise funds for a downtown improvement project which includes planting trees, replacing curb sidewalks with ADA compliant sloping sidewalks, new street lights and an information kiosk and gazebo. The blinking traffic light at 3rd and Main Streets is replaced by stop signs. Though fruit growing continues, more grapes are planted and more wineries open, which increases tourism.
