Palm Springs’ Town and Country- help visualize the future

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011


PS ModCom News
Dear Paul,

Our long struggle to save the Town & Country Center continues…but with what appears to be a terrific opportunity to participate in the dialog.
The City of Palm Springs is organizing three Visioning/Design sessions to obtain public input on a conceptual master plan for the Desert Fashion Plaza and Town and Country Center (T&CC).
The first Visioning Session will be this Wednesday, January 26th
Palm Springs Convention Center’s Primrose Room
It is vital that you, the members of the Palm Springs Modern Committee, participate in these Visioning Sessions as a positive, non-adversarial way to share our ideas about the future of the T&CC.  In particular, we can focus on Andreas Road as the most appropriate east-west corridor versus the T&CC.
If you think that you might be able to attend either as a speaker or simply as a member of the audience please reply to this email.  I will contact you about what you might wish to say and share more of our strategy.
Let’s seize this opportunity to participate in the future of our city.
