Mayor Scott Matas

We're back with our October 2019 video update! This month we have a lot to cover.

While the street lights and improvements are a little behind, you can see the work being done right now. Once completed early November, the second phase will begin right away.

Thursday, October 24th 6:00pm at the Carl May Center, Diversity DHS will be hosting the LGBTQ+ Town Hall with our police chief. We invite all members of the LGBTQ+ community to attend to ask questions, and to share thoughts and concerns.

Diversity DHS will also be hosting their annual Pride Festival at Cabot's Pueblo Museum on Saturday, November 16th 10am to 5pm.

Our new entrance on Palm Drive is shining brightly to greet residents and visitors. We will rotate the colors of the lights monthly with a new theme. For October, the lights are pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. We’re also adding new signage to that area as well.

We have made economic development a priority the last few years. While the contract we have outsourced to attract development has attracted a few businesses, it’s not up to our expectations, so we are bringing an economic development manager in house.

The Desert Hot Springs Healthy City Initiative and Rotary Club are bringing back their annual Happy Healthy Halloween event October 31st, 5pm to 9pm at Mission Springs Park. It’s a safe event with food, music, candy, vendors and a “Trunk or Treat” car show.

The Desert Hot Springs Parade and Holiday Festival is returning December 14th, 5:45 to 10pm. We have a new route this year and plan to bring back rides, live music, food and Santa.

The first triathlon will be coming to town in February, 2020, produced by the Healthy City Initiative.

The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce is reviving the Spa Tour early 2020. We’ll keep you posted as the event is planned further.

Finally, our city hall is almost complete! We conclude our video with a virtual tour of what the finished project will look like.

See you all next month, Desert Hot Springs!

The entrance is nice. One thing one palm tree is only white An one other palm tree light are not working heads up need to send someone to fix it 🤗

Hi, Scott - thanks for such great progress. The new city hall is impressive. 🤗Good work, Mayor.👍

Thank you Scott!

Like the palm trees and glad to see spa tours coming back. Thank you

I especially love the lit palm trees as we enter desert hot springs.

More crosswalks are badly needed, especially between 8th St and Pierson and between Pierson and Hacienda.

Beautiful!

It was an honor to recognize Kihon MMA at last night's city council meeting.

These kids have competed around the world, often winning championships.

Thank you Eddie Bates, for opening these wonderful opportunities for our youth in Desert Hot Springs.
