La Quinta - New Convention Center


Last updated 11/5/2015 at 9:09am

La Quinta Tourism, a Saxony Group subsidiary, have been given until Dec. 1 to submit a site plan, addressing parking, traffic and noise control as well as building improvement plans for the planned Coachella Valley Wind-Up events.

Saxony CEO Martin Dolemo has submitted permit applications for various alterations to the new Saxony Convention Center, planned to go into the former Sam’s Club building, at 79315 Highway 111.

City Planning Manager Gabriel Perez said he and other city staff have been working with Dolemo, setting timelines to help him get everything accomplished in time for the April musical events, despite Saxony failing to deliver on several previous grand projects in the past.

Despite the appearance of billboards throughout the valley announcing Coachella Valley Wind-Up musical events, April 14, 21 and 28 at the center, the temporary use permit to hold the event has yet to be approved by the city.
