The College of the Desert board of education will hold a presentation with updates on the Palm Springs campus and Roadrunner Motors in Cathedral City.
The campus has been in development since 2004 with almost $1 billion raised in tax revenue for construction. It will be located on a 27-acre site right across the street from Palm Springs High School along S Farrell Drive, between E Tahquitz Canyon Way and E Baristo Road.
According to the school, the campus will establish and augment signature programs including Hospitality and Culinary Arts, Digital Media and Media Production, Radio, Health, and Sustainable Technologies.
The latest designs have the campus taking up more than 150,000 square feet, an increase of 10,000 square feet. Despite the larger size, a lot of the campus will initially be empty for future development.
