Document Description
Initial Study / Notice of Preparation The Porcupine Creek Retreat Specific Plan project (“project”) is proposing to develop a retreat within the boundaries of the 191-acre Porcupine Creek private estate, in the City of Rancho Mirage. The project proposes to reposition Porcupine Creek as an exclusive destination with a total of up to 50 studio, single-bedroom, and multi-bedroom units (“keys”). Proposed upgrades would incorporate a modified main house, a new restaurant, dining deck, upgraded spa complex, additional retreat related facilities, and a rerouted 18-hole golf course. The rerouting of the 18-hole golf course intends to remain on the existing fairways with some minor adjustments, all located within estate grounds and bounded by the existing roadways and cart paths. These additions could expand the total building area on the estate from approximately 66,500 square feet to approximately 250,000 square feet. The retreat will provide an all-inclusive experience that encourages guests to remain on property during their visit. Consistent with existing practices, the proposed, upgraded dining, golf, and spa facilities will be available to guests only”.
