Housing developments could add nearly 600 homes in Palm Springs

Two large, new residential developments in Palm Springs would add nearly 600 housing units, dividing them between the north and south ends of town.

The proposed projects are sure to receive close scrutiny from city leaders and residents as one of them would replace an abandoned golf course, while the other reaches into pristine lands at the base of the San Jacinto Mountains, an area popular among hikers and others.
