El Mirador Neighborhood Organization

The El Mirador Neighborhood is a quiet and varied area of approximately 160 houses located in the tract east of Desert Regional Medical Center. Our major boundaries, Tachevah, Avenida Caballeros and Via Miraleste, while somewhat busy are still totally residential and distinguish the area from surrounding neighborhoods. Having Ruth Hardy Park and The Wellness Park on our southern border and the hospital on our western border helps define the area and provides large greenbelts and separation from major traffic.

There are few children in the area and most residents tend not to get involved with civic affairs unless they are directly affected. Many houses are second homes (about 30%) and all are one story houses ranging in price from approximately $450,000 to almost $2,000,000. While some streets do not have curbs, many do and some even have sidewalks. The consensus is that we like the individual streets the way they are and do not want to change their varied nature.

The El Mirador organization was formed approximately 8 years ago in response to an issue with two short term vacation rental houses that created a significant disturbance to our peace and relaxed atmosphere. We have corrected the issue and, as a result of our efforts and others efforts the city is proposing a city-wide ordinance to better monitor and control short term rentals.

Two years ago we sought to improve the appearance in areas of our neighborhood that were not as attractive as other very appealing streets such as El Mirador and Mel. Our solution was to plant more street trees that would create the desired arbor effect. While we have had some success in planting about a dozen trees along Chia Road, we have a significant way to go.

The Organization is committed to maintaining and increasing our property values, retaining the relaxed and quiet atmosphere, reducing crime (utilizing our own version of neighborhood watch), improving communication and enabling all residents to be good neighbors.

The El Mirador Neighborhood Organization was instrumental in forming the city wide Office of Neighborhood Involvement and in fact became the first association (originally named Bel Desierto) to be certified by the umbrella organization. There are now 15 Neighborhoods in the group and more joining every month. We have direct lines of open communication with city officials and are sanctioned by city ordinance.

Our goal is to meet monthly from October to June. Our annual meeting, including elections, is in November and our suggested dues/donation is $24 annually. Participation by owners and long term renters is encouraged and needed to assist with our goals and the tasks required by the city.

Upcoming Meeting Dates & Times:
Board meeting (open to all, however): Noon Saturday, 15, March at 930 E. Chia Rd., General Meeting: “second Sunday in November at noon” according to our by-laws.

Success Stories:
Several progressive parties with one neighbor hosting a different course of a meal: appetizer, main course, dessert. We’ve been able to communicate with neighbors almost immediately about break-ins, etc. Our association is small but the percentage of active members is growing yearly... as are our boundaries.

Indian Canyons Neighborhood Organization

OUr Neighborhood Today, (check out for the story of our neighborhood yesterday) by Linda Meierhoffer of Camino Real Originally built in the 1960s, most of Indian Canyons’ coveted real estate has been refurbished to reflect its modernistic roots. Those who live here have chosen this neighborhood not only for its distinctive architecture, with designs by Stan Sackley and Palmer and Krisel to name a few, but also for its unmistakable vibe: Welcoming, diverse, laid back and cordial come to mind when describing this little piece of Palm Springs history, both past and present. Our neighborhood’s name changed in 2009 from Canyon Country Club to Indian Canyons to reflect the new ownership of the 18-hole championship golf course, Indian Canyons North, which our homes surround. This par 72 course, along with the 18-hole golf course directly across Murray Canyon Road, Indian Canyons South, are owned by the Agua Caliente Indian tribe and are open to the public. Name changes aside, much of our neighborhood remains the same: The dog walkers, joggers and bicyclists still populate our palm tree-lined streets, retirees on a stroll continue to stop and chat with professionals who fly here from their high-pressure lives somewhere else, and authentic mid-century modern homes stand in neighborly fashion next to tile-roofed Southwestern ranches. Natural desert beauty is our Indian Canyons neighborhood’s trademark. We look out our picture windows to the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains, like bulky chocolate carvings during the day that dapple gold and purple at sunset, while even closer to home are the Indian Canyons North’s lush fairways, dotted with thousands of stately palms and olive trees. The golf resort’s clubhouse, itself a tribute to modernism in its Donald Wexler design, provides a bit of unexpected grandeur in its northwest view of the course: The Walt Disney Fountain with majestic water jets that spray more than 100 feet into the air.

Twin Palms Neighborhood Organization

Unlike the inclusive city we know today, Palm Springs at mid 20th century restricted the areas in which its Jewish population could live and play. Sensing market demand, developers George and Robert Alexander, working with architect William Krisel, intended raw desert at the City’s southern edge to become a Jewish enclave. First they built the Ocotillo Lodge. Completed in 1956, the Lodge welcomed all home-seekers considering one of the 90 new adjacent homes. It was this fledgling neighborhood that introduced to the desert such modernist residential elements as open carports, clerestory windows, exposed concrete block, breezeways, and butterfly roofs. In doing so, Twin Palms became both the first midcentury modern neighborhood built by the Alexanders and the first housing tract in Palm Springs. Its success initiated the City's first major major housing boom and forever changed its architectural landscape. By the 1980s, contemporary, Spanish contemporary, and modern designs mingled with the midcentury architectural styles. Many original homes have been faithfully restored in recent years—some with the participation of William Krisel—and tour buses now lace our streets during Modernism Week. The Twin Palms Neighborhood Organization was certified by the City in March 2013. More than 25 members serve its vibrant committees that collectively provide opportunities for socializing and expressing civic responsibility, maximizing security and quality of life, preserving and promoting our neighborhood history, and keeping our neighbors and the City informed of our activities. Twin Palms now benefits from a population mix that reflects the diversity of Palm Springs, and the legacy of William Krisel and the Alexanders is a neighborhood alive with history and rich with character.

Vista Las Palmas Neighborhood Organization

Upcoming Meeting Dates & Times:
Annual Meeting Sunday, November 2006 2:00 P.M.

Success Stories:
At our 1st Annual Meeting last November the main complaint seemed to have been “the traffic”. There was an insufficient amount of “speed signs and STOP signs”. We took the necessary steps to satisfy the City of Palm Springs supplying names, addresses and telephone numbers of concerned residents. With the dramatic change in our neighborhood residents, children of all ages, cyclists, joggers, walkers and pets we felt a need to make Vista Las Palmas safe for everybody. We were successful in making Camino Sur & Via Monte Vista a 4 way STOP, had speed signs posted on Via Monte Vista and a “watch sign” posted at Mountain View & Via Monte Vista.

Due to the rise in crime in our area we spoke with our residents regarding a Security Patrol. On October 1st Bower Security Patrol Services was hired and we began a 24/7 Patrol Service. There are three eight hour shifts round the clock, we have a dedicated Patrol Car and other benefits. We are a safer neighborhood than we were a year ago.

We are meeting with our “social committee” to plan a couple of meet and greet events so that everyone that wants to meet and get to know their neighbors has the opportunity.
