The Palm Springs City Council isn’t meeting again until Sept. 29, but that doesn’t mean city business comes to a halt. Following are some highlights this week as multiple commissions and committees get back in session after a bit of a summer break.
- Note that sometimes meetings are canceled at the last moment. Make sure to check the city’s official calendar here if you’re planning to attend.
The Human Rights Commission holds it regular meeting at 5:30 p.m. via Zoom. On the agenda are regular reports, but also an update on a special event being held on Oct. 1 — a symposium on bullying being held at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
The City Council Finance Subcommittee meets at 11 a.m. and you can tune in via Zoom. The subcommittee consists of Mayor Lisa Middleton and Mayor Pro Tem Grace Garner. The pair will get a review of quarterly finances from the city’s asset management company.
The VillageFest Board also meets Tuesday. That meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. via Zoom. Checking out the Board’s agenda is a good way to see who might be coming to the weekly street fair.
The Palm Springs Airport Operations, Properties and Facilities Committee meets at 11 a.m. via Zoom. The agenda lists parking capacity, baggage handling, and the car rental facility as topics that could be up for discussion.
The Planning Commission meets at 5:30 p.m. It can be viewed live via the city’s website, on YouTube, or on Spectrum Channel 17. Check out the complete agenda here.
Looking ahead: Later this month the Council is expected to discuss parklets, a funding request from We Are One United, the navigation center planned for the north end of the city, and an ordinance aimed at increasing the compensation for future councilmembers.
