CV Link


By 2025, pedestrians, bicyclists, and electric vehicle drivers will have a 14-foot-wide, 52-mile-long trail connecting them to all nine Coachella Valley cities. The link will run along Whitewater River, parallel to Highway 111. Portions of the trail are in place in Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, Palm Springs, and Palm Desert; these portions will be widened in the next few years, and construction meeting national-standard sustainability goals will begin in 2015. The $70 million trail will showcase local history, public art, and Native American materials, and several electric-vehicle charging stations.

Board of Directors Solidifies Funding Commitment for One Coachella Valley

COACHELLA VALLEY – Feb. 28, 2018 – The Desert Healthcare District’s Board of Directors yesterday approved a resolution for $6 million in expansion funding, which is $300,000 annually for 20 years of unrestricted funds, as part of the Riverside County Local Formation Commission (LAFCO) expansion application. This represents a self-funded revenue source that would support programs and services to the residents of Eastern Coachella Valley upon successful voter approval of the expansion initiative in November of this year.
