Document Description
The proposed project consists of the Glamis Specific Plan (GSP) to guide development within the unincorporated community of Glamis, California in the eastern portion of Imperial County. Centered around the Glamis Beach Store, the 143 acre Glamis Specific Plan Area (GSPA) is generally bounded by the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (ISDRA) on the south and by the North Algodones Dunes Wilderness (NADW) on the north. The GSPA is approximately 27 miles east of the City of Brawley and 20 miles north of I-8. The GSP is intended to enhance the experience of existing recreational users of the adjacent areas and implement the County’s objectives for the area by facilitating development of recreation-serving land uses and required infrastructure. Permitted uses within the GSPA include recreational, commercial/retail, OHV and RV storage, entertainment and hospitality uses, seasonal guest and employee housing, renewable energy, infrastructure, and a research and development facility for Polaris (Project Applicant).
