Over the past six months, the College of the Desert Board of Trustees has reviewed 38 Coachella Valley properties during closed sessions of its monthly meetings.
The properties — most of which the college does not own — range in size from one-tenth of an acre to 115 acres. Some parcels are zoned for office buildings and commercial uses. Others are zoned as residential lots. Several plots of land are vacant, and a large parcel where the college once planned to build a campus in northern Palm Springs is simply zoned as desert.
