Post Date:10/07/2019 4:30 PM

 City Hall Sunset PanoramaThe public is invited to an Open House on Wednesday, October 23, where the community will have a chance to learn about and provide input on the second phase of improvements on San Pablo Avenue. The Open House will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Administrative Conference Room at City Hall, located at 73510 Fred Waring Drive (northeast corner of Fred Waring and San Pablo).  

The City has been implementing changes on San Pablo as part of the street improvement project’s first phase in the areas between Highway 111 and Fred Waring Drive. 

San Pablo’s second phase improvements focus on the roadway between Fred Waring and Magnesia Falls Drive and include widened sidewalks, bike lanes, on-street parking, enhanced pedestrian crosswalks and lighting, landscaping, drainage and pavement improvements, improved utilities, and additional roundabouts at San Pablo and Magnesia Falls Drive and at San Pablo and the College of the Desert entrance. San Pablo Phase Two will be coordinated with College of the Desert and with CV Link, to which it will connect.

The goal of the work on San Pablo Avenue is to make it part of a pedestrian and bike friendly downtown. The improvements highlight San Pablo’s vital role as a vital link between El Paseo/Highway 111, area neighborhoods, Palm Desert Civic Center, College of the Desert and the McCallum Theatre.

Information about the changes taking place on San Pablo is also available at and by calling the Palm Desert Public Works Department at 760-346-0611, ext. 493.
