Vision for La Quinta
Neighbors for Neighborhoodslq (N4N), a group of La Quinta residents produced a VISION FOR LA QUINTA report and recommendations. This VISION proposes an integrated plan to reinvigorate the post COVID economy by developing the Silver Rock Resort and Signature at PGA West, replenishing our depleted housing inventory and solving the “nightly” Short Term Vacation Rental (STVR) problem.
These recommendations used inputs from the Ad Hoc STVR Committees final report, an N4N survey, lessons learned from other cities and HOAs, and additional facts and data.
Survey Written Comments
N4N's Vision for La Quinta report included survey results from five questions where participants could provide written comments. There were 945 written comments from the survey and these were listed in pages 57 - 100 of the Vision for La Quinta Report.
The Vision for La Quinta recommendations relied in part on a survey of residents from twenty one neighborhoods within the city of La Quinta. The survey was conducted between November 25 - December 11, 2020. The results are made available in the following page sections. The survey’s objective was to collect and evaluate the opinions of La Quinta residents living near STVRs. The survey data results appear on pages 47-54 of the report.
