Please refer to the attached RFP DocumentThe City of Palm Springs is a Charter City and was incorporated in 1938. Palm Springs, encompassing approximately 95 square miles, is nestled at the base of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains, approximately 60 miles east of Riverside. The City is a well-known resort destination with a year round population of approximately 46,600 and a seasonal population that nearly doubles. Palm Springs not only prides itself on its resort amenities, but also on the village character it has been able to maintain. At the same time, Palm Springs has many major amenities typically found in cities with much larger populations, such as the Palm Springs International Airport, Convention Center, Palm Springs Art Museum, Aerial Tramway, Desert Regional Medical Center, a broad range of public services, and diverse residential neighborhoods. Open space and mountainous areas comprise almost half of the City’s total area and provide treasured natural recreation opportunities and habitat areas. Primary access is provided by Interstate 10 east-bound (bordering and traversing the northerly portion of Palm Springs) and Palm Canyon Drive (SR-111) from Interstate 10, and Highway 111 westbound.
