"Shadowrock recently joined forces with the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, who also own undeveloped land on the cove, off of Highway 111, just below the Aerial Tramway. While the tribe has said it is too premature to discuss possible development for its land, tribal spokeswoman Nancy Conrad said the tribe's relationship with Bragg will ensure that any development that is done will be coordinated and tasteful.
Continuing to find ways to bring in new, responsible development that will strengthen Palm Spring's economic base should continue. New economic growth is needed.
For its part, the City Council hammered out an ordinance that limits density on Chino Cone. It is a very good compromise.
But if a new upscale development is not created on Chino Cone, it must happen somewhere in the city. Palm Springs needs new development to remain a top tourist destination and a contender in the fight for a viable economy."
