historic context statementThe Historic Context Statement tells about the early days of La Quinta, beginning with its early inhabitants and continuing on through its settlement and development as a town. It concludes prior to the City's incorporation as that event, along with the events since, occurred less than 50 years ago and although undeniably important, they are not yet within the scope of the City's Historic Preservation Ordinance and Commission. Although it certainly serves as an interesting and nostalgic read, its real purpose is to establish the context of the existing built environment along with other features of the land to help determine the significance of such places and their importance in serving as evidence of our past.
The City's Historic Context Statement is currently in a draft form and is available through the following link to view. As it is still a draft and not yet formally adopted, your comments and suggestions are welcome, please contact the Planning Department by phone or email to share your thoughts.
