In 2007, Cathedral City initiated a comprehensive effort to create and implement a bold new vision for the community by developing an annexation program and Specific Plan for approximately 5,000 acres of land located north of Interstate Highway 10. The North City Specific Plan was completed in July of 2009 as a result of an intensive process of community outreach, a studied response to market demand, and a sustainable design sensitivity to North City’s signature desert environment.

Cathedral City is proceeding with an effort to extend the adopted North City Specific Plan and annexation process to include an additional land area east of North City and north of I-10 that is within the unincorporated community of Thousand Palms. The area is included in the City’s Sphere of Influence. A developer is proposing a 590 acre mixed use development which is addressed in this North City Extended Specific Plan, and is poised for future annexation into the City of Cathedral City.

This Specific Plan builds upon and extends the land use planning approach and community design guidelines of the original North City Specific Plan, and further establishes strong economic, transportation and lifestyle connections between the North City area and the existing Cathedral City com m unity south of I-10, as well as the rest of the Coachella Valley. This plan is also responsive to needs and desires for future development by the Thousand Palms community.
