Not necessary. Especially the one on Palm and Cholla. It will only create traffic congestion! There are already too many traffic lights on Palm Drive. And it sounds ridiculously expensive too.

Sturdy ones that hold up to the battering from the wind, I hope.

We need reflective stop signs ! Dillon and Little Morongo Indian Canyon and Dillon You can't see those at night.

Good job. Thanks, DHS.

Thanks Scott!

Hope to get see stop signs on via Loreto and desert view and cholla and desert view. Lol

General Plan and Housing Element Facts: A General Plan is a broad planning guideline to a city's or county's future development goals and provides policy statements to achieve those development goals. Each general plan must include the vision, goals, and objectives of the city or county in terms of planning and development within eight different elements. These elements are defined by the state as: land use, housing, circulation, conservation, noise, safety, open space, and environmental justice. A Housing Element provides an analysis of a community's housing needs for all income levels, and strategies to respond to those housing needs. It is a key part of the City's overall General Plan. • It must identify locations available for housing projects • It does NOT approve development, it just plans for it The below map identifies locations that have already been approved for housing by the City Council and areas that need to be designated as residential for future development applications. ...
