Draft Maps

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Following drafting of maps, the City Council solicited public input. The period for formal public comment on these maps has closed. On April 16, 2020, the City Council adopted a map defining the boundaries of the new district. 

The Council wants to know not just which map(s) you like or dislike, but why you feel that way about each map. These are the first drafts, not necessarily the final maps, and future versions can include revisions aimed at addressing the concerns raised by residents. Please take the time to look at them and share your thoughts, either via email to PalmDesert@NDCResearch.comby letter, or in person at one of the upcoming Council hearings.
