FEBRUARY 2021: At the direction of City Council, over the next few months City staff will conduct additional outreach meetings with the public to gather more robust input on the draft General Plan Vision and Priorities before it is adopted. Meetings will likely take place both virtually and in-person, as the public health situation allows.



The General Plan Update will provide a framework for decision making to establish goals and policies that will guide Palm Springs in realizing its future vision. The General Plan Update provides an exciting opportunity to continue shaping the future of Palm Springs. Through the Update process, the City, with input from the public and stakeholders, will consider many topics including, land use, circulation, housing, safety, and downtown design elements. This process will ensure that Palm Springs continues to advance as a modern city, planned by design.

This website will be updated regularly to provide information and progress throughout the duration of the project. Here you can find general information as well as detailed meeting summaries, draft documents, and links to helpful resources. Please sign up to receive updates directly to your email.


The City’s General Plan Update was expected to take approximately 18 months to complete. However, the COVID-19 pandemic limited the City's ability to gather community input, so the project timeline has been extended, with the housing element being completed first to meet state-mandated deadlines and the remainder of the limited update following with an anticipated overall completion timeframe anticipated in May, 2022.
