Palm Springs City Council Votes on Oswit Canyon and Spa Hotel

Posted: Updated:
Palm Springs, CA -

The Palm Springs City Council voted unanimously to declare Oswit Canyon an ecologically sensitive area but acknowledged they will have a long battle ahead with the developers. Many members of the group Save Oswit Canyon attended the meeting in force and cheered when the decision was made. They say they're ready to fight on and the council did the right thing. The attorney for the developers Elise Kern said she expected the council to make this decision but would not comment further because of pending litigation. 

The council also voted unanimously for the expansion of the Spa Resort Hotel with the conditions that they would form a committee to discuss a height reduction of the hotel from 175 feet to 100 feet and funding for additional fire and police personnel that both departments say will be needed with the expansion.
