Several years ago, there was a liquor store at 3299 North Indian Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, on the northwest corner of San Rafael Road.


Now, it’s just a boarded up, painted over, empty building.


But someone has a dream.


And that is Tower Energy Group, which envisions a grocery store and gasoline station on that property.


But to build the store and gas station, Tower Energy needs a zone change from the city.


The Planning Commission has already rejected the zone change, and so Tower Energy is now taking its plight to the City Council.


The issue is on the City Council agenda for Thursday November 12th 2020 at 5:30 p-m on Zoom.


The Council will also discuss this year’s first quarter budget, and delve into exactly where the Forever Marilyn statue will stand on Museum Way, across from the Downtown Park that is in the works.


The City is also approving spending nearly a quarter of a million dollars for a company from North Carolina to come to town and work on environmental and engineering design services to make improvements to traffic signals around town.  And is another pot shop needed? Apparently yes, at 155 South Palm Canyon Drive.
