The project would construct a 13,620-square-foot multi-tenant commercial retail center on 6.12 acres of vacant land. The project site is undeveloped with the exception of an existing surface parking lot which serves the Indio Municipal Golf Course and contains minimal, sparse shrubs and date palm trees. Specifically, the project includes three drive-thru fast-food restaurants and one sit-down restaurant. Additionally, the project would include surface parking, landscaping, and off-site right-of-way improvements. Electrical service would be provided by extending a new backbone circuit from the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) Shadow Hills substation to the project site. There is existing conduit that extends from the Shadow Hills substation to the western border of the single-family residential development on the north side of Avenue 42 across from Calhoun Street. Trenching for new electrical conduit would occur on the north side of Avenue 42 for approximately 1,250 feet to the east from the eastern terminus of the project site. In addition to the commercial retail development, the proposed Project would reconstruct the existing Indio Municipal Golf Course’s parking lot east of the driveway along the project frontage on Avenue 42.
