ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIC PLAN – CITY OF LA QUINTA

RSG has served as the City’s economic development, redevelopment and housing staff since 1988.  In this capacity, RSG prepared, and has annually updated, an Economic Development Plan that establishes the City’s economic development priorities and investment strategies that has secured retail, auto, resort and other hospitality establishments.  These activities have fostered a significant expansion of the community’s tourism and commercial base, and significant growth in municipal revenues.  One particular project is SilverRock Resort.  SilverRock is a La Quinta Redevelopment Agency investment to build two tournament quality golf courses, and to recruit resort hotel developers and operators to build 1,200 hotel, condominium hotel and fractional hotel rooms, associated resort oriented retail, and other hospitality oriented recreation venues.
