The La Quinta Planning Commission recommended approval of the draft General Plan and supporting draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) by a 5-0 vote during their public hearing held on September 11, 2012. Following the recommendation of the Planning Commission, the next and final step is for the General Plan to go before the City Council for final consideration and adoption on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 7:00pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall, located at 78-495 Calle Tampico. A copy of the Staff Report will be made available at City Hall in the City Clerk’s Office, at the Planning Department, as well as online.

Printed copies of the Draft General Plan and Final EIR are available for review online and at both the Planning Department in City Hall and at the La Quinta Public Library. The Planning Department will gladly assist anyone who would like a copy for review. We encourage everyone to review the draft 2035 General Plan in digital form. Digital copies of the draft General Plan are available free of charge to anyone interested, however those seeking a printed copy will be required to pay a fee in order to cover the printing costs. Copies are available on disk (.PDF format on CD-ROM) at City Hall as well as for download online from the “Documents” page.
