RFP: Desert Resort Master Land Use Plan

RFP: Desert Resort Master Land Use Plan

La Quinta Redevelopment Agency

The City of La Quinta Redevelopment Agency requests proposals from qualified firms to prepare a desert resort master land use plan and development program for one of the Coachella Valley's premier golf and resort locations. The Agency recently purchased 525 acres of desert property that was once the Ahmanson family's ranch. Known as The Ranch, the Agency desires to develop resort, golf, passive recreation and commercial uses that embrace the adjoining Coral Reef Mountains and incorporate some of the Ahmanson ranch structures. In order to identify the optimum development program, a planning process that generates a master land use plan is required.

The selected consultant team must have intimate knowledge of designing and developing desert resort and golf communities and village centers. The Agency is seeking specialists who are experienced with creating special places that combine hotel, condo hotel, golf, passive recreation and commercial uses. Part of the development will include a village or town center that facilitates the interface of the community with the resort and golf uses. Our goal is to establish a destination that caters to the needs of both world travelers and La Quinta residents.
