Document Description
Inclues two 18-hole public golf courses with a 25,000 square foot clubhouse as well as a 9-hole public golf course providing a junior golf program. The proposed resort uses would include a 250-room hotel with a 10,000 square foot conference center, 300 Timeshare units, fractional or condo hotel units (Timeshare) and 25,000 square feet of ancillary commercial uses. The City of La Quinta Redevelopment Agency is proposing to acquire the Project Site at this time. Subsequent discretionary actions required to develop the site include adoption of a Specific Plan as required for development of an area designated for Tourist Commerical uses by the General Plan, a zone change to make the zoning designations consistent with the land use designations, a Conditional Use Permit for the 300 Timeshare units, a Site Development Permit and a Tentative Tract Map to subdivide the site to accommodate the proposed uses. Additional design features to be incorporated into the project include passive park space, trails, and view corridors. The existing Pelz short game golf school may remain. No development would occur on the 182 acres of the Coral Reef Mountains on the western portion of the Project Site.
