Spevacek, City Manager Dated:_____________________________________ ATTEST: By:________________________________________ Susan Maysels, City Clerk APPROVED AS TO FORM: By:_________________________________________ William Irke, City Attorney 32 GREATER COACHELLA VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE By:________________________________________ Dated:____________________________________ Name:____________________________________ Title:______________________________________ 33 34 City of La Quinta CITY COUNCIL MEETING: January 3, 2017 STAFF REPORT AGENDA TITLE: ADOPT ORDINANCE NO. 552 AT SECOND READING AMENDING CHAPTERS 9.60 AND 9.100 OF TITLE 9 OF THE LA QUINTA MUNICIPAL CODE FOR SPECIAL EVENT REGULATIONS; CEQA: FIND THE PROJECT EXEMPT PURSUANT TO SECTION 15061 (B)(3) RECOMMENDATION Adopt Ordinance No. 552 on second reading. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Council expressed interest in streamlining the City’s special event regulations. Amendments to special event regulations were considered during the December 6, 2016 Council Study Session and the Council introduced an ordinance to implement new regulations at their December 20, 2016 meeting. Adopting this ordinance is exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act pursuant to Section 15061 (B)(3) Review of Exemptions --- General Rule and is consistent with the previously approved General Plan 2035 Environmental Impact Report. FISCAL IMPACT --- None. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS The Council streamlined the development review and permitting process by adopting the Development Code Tune Up on April 19, 2016 (Ordinance Nos. 535, 536, 537, 538, and 539). Council requested expanding the Code Tune Up to include special event regulations. During the Study Session discussion, Council expressed concern of overregulating events at private residences. The recommended changes to the special event regulations are designed to address problems that arise when private residences are used for commercial activities --- large social events that are staged during music festivals or use of larger homes and properties in residential neighborhoods. It has not been the City’s practice to regulate private parties held at residences. The City does not have the resources to do so. Instead, staff’s intent is to offer regulations that mitigate the impact commercial events have on residential neighborhoods and to provide a forum wherein adjacent neighbors are notified of such events and have the opportunity to provide input. On December 20, 2016, the Council introduced an ordinance to implement these changes. ALTERNATIVES As Council approved this ordinance at first reading, staff does not recommend an alternative.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY •SilverRock Development Company, LLC (SDC) proposes a Site Development Permit (SDP) for a 200-key hotel, new golf course clubhouse, 10 golf villas, and a 66-unit condominium development for Planning Areas 5, 6 and 10A (Attachment 1). •On December 27, 2016, the Planning Commission approved Site Development Permit 2016-0009 (SDP); the Commission added five conditions which are outlined in this report. •Per the SilverRock Specific Plan, the Council must review and approve the SDP and the additional conditions. FISCAL IMPACT Cost to implement Condition of Approval CC-1 is estimated at $350,000-$450,000; this is the cost to install and maintain temporary fencing for a two-year period. Potential future costs would entail constructing permanent fencing. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS On November 19, 2014, the City entered into a Purchase, Sale, and Development Agreement and statutory Development Agreement with SDC for the sale and development of undeveloped portions of the SilverRock property (Attachment 2). On December 20, 2016, Council approved SDP2016-0005 for a 140-room luxury hotel, 29 hotel-branded residences, a spa, a meeting and conference center, and a shared service facility in planning areas 2, 3, and 4 of the SilverRock Specific Plan. Appeal BUSINESS SESSION ITEM NO. 1 51 condition CC-1 for construction of a temporary or permanent fence (barrier) to protect peninsular bighorn sheep (PBS) was approved with the SDP. The subject SDP is a proposal for a 200-key hotel, a new golf course clubhouse, 10 golf villas, and a 66-unit condominium development (Attachment 3). The project incorporates midcentury modern architecture, exhibited by low-rise buildings with clean, sharp horizontal and vertical planes, and large expanses of glass to take advantage of surrounding views. The site areas and development parameters are: Table 1 SDP2016-0009 Development Parameters Planning Area Size (Acres) Proposed Development 5 13.3 200-key Lifestyle Hotel 10A 6.9 Golf Clubhouse; 10 Golf Villas 6 10.3 66-Unit Lifestyle Branded Residential The Lifestyle Hotel (Planning Area 5) will be 200-key resort complex rather than a single hotel building. The lobby building consists of a reception area, a restaurant/bar, and fitness center. Walkways lead from the lobby to the hotel guestrooms within multiple three-story buildings. The pool area is located south of the lobby, and a tennis facility, with four standard courts and one stadium court, is located north of the lobby. A Golf Course Clubhouse is proposed southeast of the Lifestyle Hotel in Planning Area 10A. The Clubhouse is comprised of two buildings; one consisting of a lounge and kitchen facility, and the other consisting of the pro shop, office, and golf cart barn. The Golf Villas consist of 10 condominium units located in Planning Area 10A, adjacent to the clubhouse to be placed in the hotel rental pool. Amenities include a pitch and putt golf course and multiple fire pits. A parking area is provided within the Villas area, and is not dependent on the centralized shared parking area. A lifestyle-Branded Residential development consisting of 11 three-story buildings with two- and three-bedroom units is proposed south of the Golf Villas, across the existing canal. Amenities include two pitch n’ putt golf courses and a pool area with a sand beach, bar, and water slide. Similar to the Villas, the Branded Residential units are condominiums available within hotel rental pool. The project proposes 708 parking stalls that accommodate parking demand of 707 parking stalls from the project parking analysis (Attachment 4). The planting palette incorporates a number of native species, and will blend well with the natural backdrop of the Santa Rosa Mountains and the golf course. The planting palette has been reviewed for consistency with the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (CVMSHCP) permitted and prohibited planting list, to assure that the project’s adjacency to the Santa Rosa Mountains Conservation Area does not introduce inappropriate plant species. 52 ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW The proposed project was reviewed under the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Design and Development Department (Department) determined that the application is a “project” as defined by CEQA. However, the Department also found that Environmental Assessment (EA) 2014-1003 reviewed amended plans for the SilverRock Specific Plan, and that the currently proposed project is consistent with what was reviewed and approved in 2014. Condition of Approval No. 62, provides further specificity and hard deadlines for the construction of a temporary and permanent eightfoot fence or functional equivalent (barrier) for the protection of big horn sheep as required by mitigation measures of EA 2014-1003. Conditions have not substantially changed and no substantial changes have been made to the project when compared to the 2014 analysis. As a result, the previously approved EA, including its mitigation measures and Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program will be applied to the currently proposed project, resulting in less than significant impacts. AGENCY AND PUBLIC REVIEW Public Agency Review The SDP was sent to all applicable City departments and affected public agencies on October 21, 2016. All written comments received are on file and available for review with the Design and Development Department. All applicable comments have been adequately addressed and/or incorporated in the recommended conditions of approval. Planning Commission Review On December 27, 2016, the Planning Commission heard testimony and approved the SDP with attached conditions of approval and finding of consistency with Environmental Assessment 2014-1003. The Commission recommended additional conditions (63 through 67) that include: • Not using mesquite trees • Incorporating vertical landscape elements adjacent to three-story buildings • New building material colors compatible with mountains • Measurements for hotel room options • Redesigning the golf clubhouse to maximize revenue and function. ALTERNATIVES Alternative actions include denying the project, or discussion and incorporation of any adjustments deemed appropriate in order to approve the proposed project.

ATTACHMENT 4 167 168 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 1 Silver Rock Resort P A R K I N G A N A L YS I S R E P O R T PROJECT OVERVIEW The Silver Rock Resort is a proposed development project in La Quinta, CA which will ultimately include two hotels, meeting and event space, dining options, a full service spa, golf facilities, and a component of residential units. The resort’s various land uses will generate demand for parking from guests, visitors, and employees. The hotel's developer is interested in better understanding the parking needs such that the overall design of the resort is set to accommodate the optimal number of parking stalls. Further, entitlement activity is scheduled to occur which will include an analysis of the parking program. Niche Advisors is a parking consulting firm with expertise in the hotel parking market. Niche was commissioned to carry out a parking study that compares requirements based on municipal regulations and the Urban Land Institute’s Shared Parking approach. This report includes detail into these methodologies and our overall recommendations for parking inventory. The Silver Rock Resort falls under the regulatory requirements of the City of La Quinta, California. In 2006, the City approved the Silver Rock Resort Specific Plan as a separate governing document to provide guidance to land use within the Silver Rock Resort area. The Specific Plan called for additional hospitality- oriented development to supplement the existing golf course, including golf, hotel and commercial/related uses. The Specific Plan is the primary driver of governance for the property, but all resulting decisions are to be consistent with the La Quinta Comprehensive General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. If the Specific Plan provides no direction in a certain area, than the General Plan should be the guide. Section 3.2.21 of the Specific Plan provides governance in regards to off street parking, including Table 15 which provides the number of stalls required for various land uses. Just after this table, the Specific Plan states, “Modifications to the parking management program pursuant to Section 9.150.050 and 9.150.060 of the La Quinta Zoning Ordinance may be considered and approved.” Section 9.150.050 (Determination of Spaces Required) introduces the La Quinta parking requirements for the City of La Quinta outside of the Specific Plan area. It states that when an applicant can “show to the satisfaction of the City decision-making authority” that the typical requirements (shown in 9.150.060) do not apply, that two alternative methods of calculating parking needs are authorized. The first is the Urban Land Institute’s “shared parking” methodology which is further defined in section 9.150.070. In certain cases when the standard schedule and the Urban Land Institute methodology don’t apply, the City is authorized to use its own methodology based on factoring in the “expected number of occupants, employees, customers or visitors, vehicles stationed on the site, loading spaces required, handicapped spaces required, emergency access considerations and use of parking by unauthorized vehicles.” In the end, the La Quinta Zoning Ordinance advises developers to present their parking plan based on the standard requirements unless those requirements are not applicable. If the City agrees, they can take an 169 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 2 alternative approach through either the ULI shared parking method or through their own less structured methodology of determining the operational needs of the facility. Both of these approaches are acceptable by code if the City decision-making authority agrees with the developer’s process and plan. The rest of this document will illustrate our calculation of requirements under each of the methods mentioned. PROGRAM OVERVIEW In order to begin calculating parking requirements for Silver Rock, it is important to first define the land uses which will generate parking demand. The current resort program is essentially two hotels – a luxury property and lifestyle property. Each hotel will have food and beverage options and small retail outlets. The luxury hotel will house a full service spa. A shared services building will house meeting space which will be shared by both properties. In addition to the hotels, the existing golf course and facilities will remain open and the developer will eventually install an additional 9 holes. The details of the programming is shown below.

It states that “The applicant shall prepare a detailed parking management program as part of any Site Development Permit that complies with the following standards (NOTE: These provisions may be modified and updated as part of site development permit or subdivision map approval process):” It then goes on to list parking stall requirements for a variety of land uses based on number of spaces per unit of measurement (i.e. spaces per room, spaces per square foot, etc). Not all land uses are spelled out in the Specific Plan, but in terms of those uses which are defined, the requirements would result in a parking plan as shown below. Unadjusted Parking Requirements Per The Silver Rock Specific Plan Specific Plan Requirement Units Spaces Hotel Units 1Per Room Up To 50, Then 0.75 Per Room 340 268 Hotel F&B 1 Per 5 Seats Plus 20% For Employees 483 116 Hotel Employee Parking 0.5 Per Employee At Max Shift (Other than Retail or Spa Employees)378 189 Conference Center/Shared Services Credit 30 Ft Per Guest Unit. Then 1 Per 30 Ft Of Largest Single Room 8,500 0 Retail 1 Per 300 Ft 747 2 Maximum Spaces Required 575 Use There are several factors to be considered in the estimation: Spa: The Specific Plan separates retail and spa employees out from the rest of the employee calculation. Retail space has its own Specific Plan requirements but there are none for the Spa. This means that Spa customers and employees have not been factored into the initial forecast. The only statutory requirement related to a Spa in the La Quinta Zoning Ordinance is for “Health Club and Spa” requirements of 1 space per 150 feet. The proposed Silver Rock spa is scheduled to be 13,083 square feet, so the health club requirement would indicate a need for 87 stalls. The issue with this estimate is that the luxury spa proposed in the Silver Rock project plan is not a traditional health club in the sense of a large Bally’s or LA Fitness style club where the public is coming to work out. While there will be a 1,678 square foot fitness area, the primary purpose of the Spa is to provide Salon and Spa Treatment Services. There are 14 treatment rooms and 14 stations in the Salon for customers to be receiving service (hair cuts, manicure, make up, etc). If we were to assume every treatment station was occupied at the same time (highly unlikely), this would represent 28 customers which would each be assisted by an individual employee, plus some level of reception and administrative staff. Adding 1 stall per 150 feet for the 1,678 fitness area to these assumptions, and the absolute maximum parking demand for the spa would be defined as follows: o Maximum customers on site: 28 o Spa employees assisting these customers: 28 o Fitness center patrons: 11 o Reception and management: 3 o Total Spa Requirements: 70 171 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 4 Golf: No requirements are spelled out for golf facilities in the Specific Plan, but they are included in the La Quinta Zoning Ordinance (LQZO). The LQZO calls out 5 parking spaces per hole. Since the current golf course is 18 holes and there are plans for an additional 9 holes, this would indicate a need for 135 spaces. Based on these additional factors, the parking requirements for the Silver Rock Resort would be as follows: Parking Requirements Per The Silver Rock Specific Plan Specific Plan Requirement Units Spaces Hotel Units 1Per Room Up To 50, Then 0.75 Per Room 340 268 Hotel F&B 1 Per 5 Seats Plus 20% For Employees 483 116 Hotel Employee Parking 0.5 Per Employee At Max Shift (Other than Retail or Spa Employees)378 189 Conference Center/Shared Services Credit 30 Ft Per Guest Unit. Then 1 Per 30 Ft Of Largest Single Room 8,500 0 Retail 1 Per 300 Ft 747 2 Spa Based On Peak Possible Demand 70 70 Golf 5 Per Hole 27 135 Maximum Spaces Required 780 Use Adjustments Unlike many municipal parking guides, the Silver Rock Specific Plan includes some level of consideration to actual parking behavior. As an example, the Plan only requires 0.5 spaces per employee at the peak staffing level in a given day. Many municipalities would simply assume that every employee might bring a vehicle, and as such, dictate that the parking lot should accommodate the full load. The reality is that many hotel employees carpool, use public transportation, or are dropped off and picked up. Assuming every employee would park their own vehicle would result in a large overbuilt parking lot that consumes land which could have a different highest and best use. While the Specific Plan does provide for realistic parking results in many areas, there are four additional adjustments to consider: Guest Drive-In Ratio: In the hotel parking industry, the guest drive-in ratio is a term used to quantify the percentage of hotel guest room nights that have a vehicle associated with them. In other words, if 100 rooms were occupied on a night when 40 vehicles were parked in the lot, then the guest drive in ratio would be 40%. Many municipal parking requirements assume that every guest will arrive by car and recommend 1 stall per guestroom (a 100% drive-in ratio). In practice, this does not ever happen. Guests arrive by shuttle, by tour bus, by taxi or Uber, by Towne Car or private transportation, are dropped off by acquaintances, etc. Niche has access to a database of the vehicle volume from over 400 hotels around the country. The national average drive-in ratio in the trailing 12 months as of September 2016 is 30%, and in Southern California, the average is 57%. Generally, more guests drive a personal vehicle the farther a property is from an airport. Fewer guests drive to urban locations or convention/destination hotels as the guests are often at or within walking distance of the reason for their visit, and thus have less of a need for a vehicle. 172 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 5 Niche’s database includes three properties in the Coachella Valley. We pulled the monthly guest drive-in ratios for these three properties for January 2013 through September of 2016. The absolute peak drive-in ratio occurred in August of 2014 at 68%. The Specific Plan requirement calls for the proposed Silver Rock Resort to provide 268 spaces for 340 rooms. If every room was occupied, this would indicate a drive-in ratio of 79%. There is not a single hotel property in Niche’s national database that has a drive in ratio this high. While the Silver Rock Resort will like draw heavily on guests driving in from Los Angeles, San Diego and Phoenix, not all customers will come from these regions and even those who do will not all drive. Particularly at the luxury hotel, some amount of high wealth customers will fly by private plane to the Palm Springs Airport and be brought to the property by private transportation, Towne Car, etc. Some level of high end group and meeting clients will fly attendees in from around the country and provide bus or shuttle transportation for the entire group. Even if we were to assume that 70% of guests will arrive by car (higher than the highest Coachella Valley property in Niche’s database), this would only indicate a need for 238 spaces. Non-Captive Adjustments A critical component of hospitality parking planning is to account for parking demand correctly amongst the variety of different uses at the property. Calculating demand by each individual land use can easily result in double counting. For example, a hotel guest that has a drink in the lobby bar, then goes to the restaurant, buys something in a retail shop and then plays a round of golf could be counted as 5 vehicles when clearly they only brought one. Non-captive adjustments are used to reduce parking counts in this manner to prevent double counting. At Silver Rock, we have made the following assumptions for non-captive adjustments: Food and Beverage Facilities: We assumed that 25% of restaurant patrons and 50% of lobby bar patrons would be hotel guests and thus already be counted in the hotel vehicles. Retail: The retail facilities will be small gift shops designed for hotel guests. We would normally assume that all patrons of these shops would be on site for some other reason, but the Specific Plan did not include retail employee parking in the hotel employee counts. As such, we assumed an 85% non-captive adjustment for the retail space. Spa: The luxury hotel spa will draw some business from the local community and from guests at other hotel properties. However, the purpose of the spa is to accommodate guests of the hotel. We assumed that at least 25% of the spa patrons will be hotel guests. Golf: As with the Spa, there will be a large draw to the golf course from external customers. When the hotel is filled with group business, there will surely be some degree of private tournaments, and some tee times will be reserved for guests. We assumed 25% of golf patrons would be hotel guests. 173 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 6 Conference Space The Silver Rock Specific Plan provides the 30 feet per guest room credit in the conference space requirements. We presume that this was established to assume that a large portion of meeting attendees would be with an in house group. While this is highly likely, there is the possibility of having a wedding or other event that is meant for local attendees from the Coachella Valley. The largest event that could happen on property would be hosted in the main ballroom which has a seating capacity of 425 people. Based on Niche’s experience, social catering events that would fill a high end ballroom do not exceed a drive-in ratio of 50%. This would mean a peak event of 425 guests would yield 213 vehicles. Shared Parking The City of La Quinta accepts shared parking analysis as defined by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) as a valid method of determining parking demand. The principle behind the ULI method is that demand generators in a mixed use facility do not all reach peak demand at the same time. In a hospitality example, some guests will take their vehicles off property during the daytime, while the daytime is the peak demand period for hotel employees. These patterns are complimentary and thus it does not make sense to plan the total inventory for the individual peak demands of each use. The ULI model is a detailed mathematical analysis based on historical statistics and vehicle counts that applies adjustments to the various uses to identify the true combined peak period demand. In general, shared parking analysis results in a decrease in inventory needs by anywhere from 5% to 40% depending on how complimentary the various uses are to each other. For the sake of this analysis, we have assumed a 10% inventory reduction as some of the adjustments a shared parking analysis would create are already in the calculations above. Adjusted Parking Requirements Based on the discussions above, the Silver Rock Resort would require 702 parking spaces as illustrated below. The current program for the property is proposing 708 stalls and as such will accommodate the demand.

The adjusted municipal requirement will be compared to the results of the shared parking study to generate a final recommendation. Niche Advisors conducts shared parking analysis based on the industry accepted standards defined in the Urban Land Institute text, "Shared Parking: Second Edition." The ULI standard breaks shared parking analysis down into a nine step process as follows: 1. Gather and Review Project Data 2. Select Parking Ratios 3. Select Factors and Analyze Differences in Activity Patterns 4. Develop Scenarios For Critical Parking Need Periods 5. Adjust Ratios For Modal Spilt and Persons Per Car For Each Scenario 6. Apply Non-Captive Adjustments For Each Scenario 7. Calculate Required Parking Spaces For Each Scenario 8. Once space counts are calculated, the recommendations are reviewed against operational concerns and the impact of different managerial strategies. 9. The result is the final recommendation of parking inventory. Step 1: Gather and Review Project Data Demand The most important step in any parking analysis is to understand the various land uses in the given project which drive parking demand. Traditional shared parking analysis is mostly about identifying these land uses and applying standard ratios for the number of parking spaces required per unit of measurement (e.g. number of rooms, square feet of meeting space, etc.). This ratio-based methodology is ideal for new developments because it allows the analyst to forecast demand before the project ever begins construction. The key is in setting the ratios to the appropriate level. In the case of the Silver Rock project, the development team was able to provide Niche Advisors with substantial data on the various land uses, including square foot and seat counts from program data and drawings. This data was broken down into the various categories available in the ULI model so that base parking requirement ratios can be applied. Where there are no applicable ULI base ratio categories, Niche will use its own data or assumptions. The various land uses and ULI categories assigned are as follows: 175 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 8 Silver Rock Resort Program By ULI Base Ratio Categories Measured By Units Months Open Hours of Operation ULI Category Lifestyle Hotel Units 200 All 24/7 Hotel Leisure Lifestyle Hotel Restaurant Square Feet 3,700 All 6a-10p Hotel Restaurant/Lounge Lifestyle Hotel Lobby Bar Square Feet 1,000 All 2p-12a Hotel Restaurant/Lounge Lifestyle Hotel Retail Square Feet 247 All 8a-8p Community Shopping Center Luxury Hotel Units 140 All 24/7 Hotel Leisure Luxury Hotel Restaurant Square Feet 4,200 All 6a-10p Fine/Casual Dining Restaurant Luxury Hotel Lobby Bar Square Feet 1,290 All 2p-12a Hotel Restaurant/Lounge Luxury Hotel Spa Square Feet 13,083 All 8a-8p Health Club Luxury Hotel Retail Square Feet 500 All 8a-8p Community Shopping Center Shared Service Meeting Space Square Feet 42,017 All 8a-8p Hotel Convention Space Golf Holes 18 All 6a-7p Niche Defined Future Golf Holes 9 All 6a-7p Niche Defined Land Use Step 2: Select Parking Ratios The second step in a shared parking analysis is to apply parking ratios to the various land uses. The ratios are designed to determine how many stalls per unit of measurement would be required for each individual land use if it were in a completely isolated environment and all customers arrived by car. For example, if one of the restaurants was a stand-alone location with nothing else near it and no way to get to it other than driving, the ratio determines how many stalls such a dining establishment would require. Later in the analysis, adjustments will be made for various other factors. The base ratio simply states the maximum potential number of spaces required per land use. It is also important to note that the industry accepted ratios are based on the concept of meeting 85% of the peak demand requirements. It is generally accepted that designing a parking facility to meet peak occupancy requirements will result in excess spaces the vast majority of the time. This is not a productive use of real estate. The logic behind ratio selection is that by designing facilities to meet 85% of the peak demand, typical volume will always be accommodated, parking shortages will be rare, and the overall efficiency of the land used for parking will be high. ULI has established base ratios for many land uses and nearly all of them translate well to the Silver Rock project. Three of the land uses in the project require further discussion as either there is no pre-defined ULI ratios or the ULI ratios are not an exact fit. Those uses are listed below: Spa: Just as in the Specific Plan analysis, the only ULI base ratios resembling the Spa is a public health club. These facilities do not have the same parking behavior as is anticipated at the Spa. As stated previously, the hotel spa is not a work out center for the public, but a treatment center for spa 176 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 9 and salon customers. In the Specific Plan analysis above, we estimated the maximum potential Spa parking demand was 70 spaces (39 customers and 31 employees), and we have kept this assumption for shared parking review. Catering/Banquets: The standard base ratio for event space at "convention" hotels (those having greater than 50 square feet of meeting space per guestroom) is 20 spaces per thousand feet of meeting space on weekdays and 10 spaces on weekends. While the Silver Rock program promotes 42,000 feet of overall potential meeting space, this includes pre-function areas and exterior areas such as lawns, etc. The ULI base ratio analysis is meant to apply to actual meeting room space only. The Silver Rock actual meeting room area is 20,473. Golf: While there is not an industry standard base ratio for golf courses, most cities apply some sort of ratio to the number of holes and the extent of the clubhouse. The peak occupancy of a golf course would be achieved if every hole were occupied and every golfer drove their own vehicle, plus some accommodation for extra people in the clubhouse. Niche normally assumes an average of 3.5 players per golfing party, plus an extra person in the clubhouse, indicating 4.5 spaces per hole or122 total. The Specific Plan calls for 5 spaces per hole, and since there is no ULI assumption, we have honored the Specific Plan. Given that base ratios are meant to meet 85% of demand, we adjusted the ratio to 4.25 spaces per hole, or a total of 115 stalls. By applying the base ratios to all of the land uses, we are able to generate the maximum number of stalls required if each use were in a standalone environment and all customers drove. This base ratio stall calculation is as follows: Base Ratio Parking Requirements Units of Number of Measurement Units Visitor Employee Total Stalls Visitor Employee Total Stalls Lifestyle Hotel Per Room 200 0.90 0.25 230 1.00 0.18 236 Lifestyle Hotel Restaurant Per 1,000 Sq Ft 3,700 10.00 37 10.00 37 Lifestyle Hotel Lobby Bar Per 1,000 Sq Ft 1,000 10.00 10 10.00 10 Lifestyle Hotel Retail Per 1,000 Sq Ft 247 2.90 0.70 1 3.20 0.80 1 Luxury Hotel Per Room 140 0.90 0.25 161 1.00 0.18 165 Luxury Hotel Restaurant Per 1,000 Sq Ft 4,200 10.00 42 10.00 42 Luxury Hotel Lobby Bar Per 1,000 Sq Ft 1,290 10.00 13 10.00 13 Luxury Hotel Spa Total Peak Demand 70 70 Luxury Hotel Retail Per 1,000 Sq Ft 500 2.90 0.70 1 3.20 0.80 2 Meeting Space Per 1,000 Sq Ft 20,473 20.00 409 10.00 205 Golf (current and future) Per Hole 27 4.25 115 115 Maximum Spaces Required 1,089 895 Weekday WeekendLand Use Step 3: Select Factors and Analyze Differences in Activity Patterns The base parking ratios above generate the number of stalls used at 85% of peak conditions if each of the uses were standalone enterprises. These ratios generate the maximum parking stalls needed for the mixed use project, but this is only a start. To get an accurate forecast of parking demand, and as such develop an optimal stall count, it is critical to make multiple adjustments to the initial base ratio count. The two primary factors considered in step three are monthly activity patterns and time of day activity patterns. 177 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 10 Seasonality Traditionally, a resort is a prime example of a land use with seasonality. Most hotels experience occupancy peaks and valleys throughout the year. Silver Rock will follow the same seasonality patterns as other hotels in the Coachella Valley, primarily driven by weather and by events that impact leisure travelers. Rather than taking a blanket approach to monthly seasonality based on the ULI national monthly adjustments, Niche used actual data from the Coachella Valley hotels in our database (Four years of occupancy trends from three Coachella Valley hotels). We applied this data to the hotel and retail components since both are directly impacted by hotel occupancy. From a seasonality perspective we utilized the ULI health club assumptions for the Spa as we have no other data available, but we did increase usage in March through May when the Coachella Valley hits peak occupancy. We also introduced seasonality to the golf course based on global assumptions of the impact of weather on golf volume. For all other land uses, we assumed the ULI monthly seasonality adjustments where applicable. Time of Day Time of day adjustments are made to reflect the fact that individual land uses have different user behavior and thus parking requirements throughout the course of a given day. For most uses, we maintained the ULI standard time of day adjustments with modifications made if required based on hours of operation, input from the developer, and our expertise in hotel parking operations. Data pertinent to our adjustment calculations for both monthly/seasonality and time of day factors are included in Exhibits A-C at the end of this report. Step 4: Develop Scenarios For Critical Parking Need Periods Once the base parking requirements are adjusted for seasonality and time of day traffic flow, it is possible to identify peak demand periods. Below are charts illustrating the "seasonality and time of day adjusted" requirements for Silver Rock on weekdays, and then again on weekends. Weekday volume is higher than weekends at nearly all times of all days. While overall volume requirements differ significantly, general demand patterns throughout a given day are similar on weekdays and weekends. Both ramp up during the early morning to hit a peak at 9am when the most employees, golfers and potential meeting attendees could be onsite before the majority of hotel guests who might leave for the day depart. There are additional busy periods during the lunch rush, and then again as hotel guests begin to return for the day before the employee counts begin to dwindle. This is a very typical pattern for a resort location. The peak demand period, or what parking planners refer to as the “Design Day” occurs on February weekdays at 9am, with similar results noon. This pattern is also similar in March and November. Essentially, the months when hotel occupancies are high will see the parking lot the most full in the morning before guests depart for the day and during the middle of the day when the employees, golf, meeting space, restaurants and spa are all in higher operating volumes. 178 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 11 Weekday Space Requirements 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 1,000 6am 7am 8am 9am 10am 11am 12pm 1pm 2pm 3pm 4pm 5pm 6pm 7pm 8pm 9pm 10pm Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Weekend Space Requirements 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 6am 7am 8am 9am 10am 11am 12pm 1pm 2pm 3pm 4pm 5pm 6pm 7pm 8pm 9pm 10pm Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Step 5: Adjust Ratios For Modal Split and Persons Per Car Adjustments for modal split and persons per car reflect the fact that not every customer of a given land use arrives by car or by themselves. The base ratios used by the parking industry in step one already reflect generalized modal split information for the various land uses. Adjustments are only made when significant variances are identified based on property specific characteristics. Luxury Hotel: The luxury hotel will be operated as a valet only establishment. This means for luxury hotel guests, luxury food and beverage patrons, patrons of the spa, and external patrons of the luxury hotel retail component, these customers will only be able to valet park. Valet nested parking facilities can always accommodate more vehicles as valets are able to park cars closer together, stack 179 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 12 cars in front of each other, etc. We have assumed a 5% modal adjustment to these uses to account for the fact that the valets will be able to fit more cars into the allocated parking area. Meeting Facilities: The only events occupying the meeting space which will draw parking customers that were not already onsite as hotel guests are high end social events, local business meetings etc. Some degree of these customers will carpool. An example might be a high end local wedding. Couples will arrive together, potentially even families. So while there might be 409 attendees of a wedding, there will not be 409 vehicles. To be conservative, we assumed a 25% modal adjustment. Our experience is traditionally significantly more than this. Step 6: Apply Non Captive Adjustments In shared parking analysis, the term "non-captive" refers to parkers who are on site for one land use, and then use others during their stay. Failing to calculate for such parkers can result in double counting and excess parking inventory. For example, if a golf patron goes inside the resort and eats at the restaurant an hour after playing, this is only a single vehicle parked whereas parking requirements would count each separately. We have already discussed non-captive ratios in the Specific Plan discussion above. Those adjustments are as follows: Food and Beverage Facilities: We assumed that 25% of restaurant patrons and 50% of lobby bar patrons would be hotel guests and thus already be counted in the hotel vehicles. Retail: The retail facilities will be small gift shops designed for hotel guests. We would normally assume all patrons of these shops would be on site for some other reason, but to allow some aspect of employee parking we assumed an 85% non-captive adjustment. Spa: The luxury hotel spa will draw some business from the local community and from guests at other hotel properties. However, the purpose of the spa is to accommodate guests of Silver Rock. We assumed that at least 25% of the spa patrons will be hotel guests. Golf: As with the Spa, there will be a large draw to the golf course from external customers. When the hotel is filled with group business however, there will surely be some degree of private tournaments, and some tee times will be reserved for guests. We assumed 25% of golf patrons would be hotel guests. Meeting Space: The majority of discussion related to meeting space parking demand is centered on a large event that is meant for the local community rather than hotel guests. Even though this is the purpose of meeting space parking requirements, there will always be some degree of event attendees who stay over in the hotel. We have assumed a 5% non-captive adjustment to reflect this. Step 7: Calculate Required Parking Spaces For Each Scenario The final step in the calculation of required parking spaces is to re-evaluate the peak demand periods after applying modal and non-captive adjustments. Below are calculations for the "Design Day" (February weekday mornings at 9am). 180 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 13 Required Spaces For Peak Demand Day Land Peak Demand Modal Split Non-Captive Recommended Use Requirements Adjustment Adjustment Stall Count Lifestyle Hotel 128 0%0%128 Lifestyle Hotel Employees 40 0%0%40 Lifestyle Hotel Restaurant 21 0%25%15 Lifestyle Hotel Lobby Bar 0 0%50%0 Lifestyle Hotel Retail 0 0%85%0 Lifestyle Hotel Retail Employees 0 0%0%0 Luxury Hotel 89 5%0%85 Luxury Hotel Employees 28 0%0%28 Luxury Hotel Restaurant 23 5%25%16 Luxury Hotel Lobby Bar 0 5%50%0 Luxury Hotel Spa 15 5%25%10 Luxury Hotel Spa Employees 12 0%0%12 Luxury Hotel Retail 0 5%85%0 Luxury Hotel Retail Employees 0 0%0%0 Shared Service Meeting Space 409 25%5%287 Golf 115 0%25%86 Total 880 707 Assume 9am February Weekdays Step 8: Review of Requirements and Operational Concerns Shared parking analysis starts by applying industry standard base ratios to the various components of a given project to determine the peak potential parking demand. Adjustments are then applied for seasonality and for fluctuations over the course of day. These adjustments identify the "design day" when peak demand is reached. This design day does not include outliers when the property may be exceptionally busy as these outliers are rare and should not dictate the design of the facility. If any of the parking segments significantly utilize alternative means of transportation, or if there is commonality among the reasons bringing people to the site, then modal split or non-captive adjustments are applied to the design day requirements. This results in the final recommended stall count for the site. The final step is to review any operational concerns that might cause need for more parking. We do not anticipate any issues at Silver Rock. This is particularly true given our discussion of the all valet approach at the luxury property (which will allow even further stack parking if necessary at peak demand periods). Further, from an operational perspective, we do not anticipate a ballroom that could hold 425 seats to generate 287 vehicles even on a high drive-in event. Our estimate is that the 707 stalls called for by shared parking analysis is conservative. 181 Silver Rock Resort Providing Specialized Services To The Hospitality Industry Page 14 Step 9: Final Recommendation of Parking Inventory With no further operating challenges impacting the shared parking analysis, the final shared parking recommendation is 707 stalls. CONCLUSION Niche Advisors has evaluated the developer’s program for the Silver Rock Resort project and determined that based on municipal requirements and operational needs, the resort should accommodate 702 parking stalls. Based on shared parking analysis, the resort should accommodate 707 stalls. A conservative approach to development planning would be to meet in the middle and establish a facility with at least 705 parking spaces. The developer is currently planning approximately 708 stalls and as such will be able to accommodate the needs of the property. Niche Advisors is appreciative of the opportunity to complete this assessment of the Silver Rock Resort project and looks forward to any feedback or questions.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY On December 20, 2016 Council adopted Resolution No. 2016-052 certifying the Village Build-Out Plan Environmental Impact Report (EIR) (SCH No. 2015101019) and introduced Ordinance No. 553 on first reading amending several chapters of Title 9 of the La Quinta Municipal Code relating to the Build-Out Plan (Plan) for the La Quinta Village, including various development standards associated thereto, and implementing new regulations. The City has been actively pursuing development within the La Quinta Village. Village Zoning Text Amendments are proposed to provide greater flexibility from the existing height, density, and parking requirements. FISCAL IMPACT It is anticipated that the Plan will facilitate future development, increase tourism and sales tax revenues.

Special attention shall be given to the use of aesthetic treatments, such as colored/textured paving or decorative gates, that contribute to the overall image and connectivity of the development. 22. New Mixed Use development shall relate to adjacent single family residential districts in the following ways: a. By stepping down the scale, height, and density of buildings at the edges of the project adjacent to less intense development. Step the building down at the ends or sides nearest a single family unit, to a height similar to that of the adjacent single family unit (or of typical single family residences in the vicinity if adjacent to an undeveloped single family zoning district). b. By incorporating architectural elements and materials that are similar to those used in the neighborhood. c.

A. Method of Determination. Off-street vehicle parking requirements shall be determined and provided in accordance with this section when the subject building or structure is constructed or a use is established or changed. In determining such off-street parking requirements, the city may use the alternative methods described in this section. The city reserves the option of requiring the use of more than one of these methods, depending on the type, size and mix of uses in a proposed development. 212 Ordinance No.553 Amendment to Title 9 Zoning – Village Build-Out Plan Adopted: January 3, 2017 Page 13 of 16 B. In the Village Build-Out Plan Area, a reduction of 50% is allowed, and any variation of the parking standard can be approved by the Director. No additional off-street parking is required for a change in nonresidential use. Development projects must demonstrate that they can provide all of the parking for residential development on-site, and a minimum of half the required spaces for commercial development on-site. Parking spaces required but not provided on-site can be provided through the preparation of a parking plan that can include: a. Use of on-street parking spaces immediately adjacent to the project. b. A shared parking agreement with adjacent property owner. c. A fair share contribution to the In Lieu fee program. d. An allocation of surplus parking spaces from ninety percent of the Village Parking Study parking supply at high season peak, as annually updated by the City, if on-site parking provided for non-residential land use on the project site is contractually dedicated as public shared parking, and signage is provided to allow public parking on the project site. e. Other methods approved in a Site Development Permit. C. Alternative Methods. Section 9.150.060 specifies the standard number of parking spaces required for most land uses. This schedule is required unless the applicant can show to the satisfaction of the city decision-making authority that it does not apply. Other alternative methods herein below may then be employed to determine the required parking spaces: 1. A recognized authority’s shared parking methodology for calculating the peak demand over time for parking in a development of mixed uses using the same parking facilities as specified in Section 9.150.070; 2. A city methodology for calculating the parking demand for extremely complex or unusual uses or combinations of uses for which the standard schedule, a recognized authority’s methodology and/or verifiable data are not applicable. Some or all of the following factors may be utilized in this methodology: expected numbers of occupants, employees, customers or visitors, vehicles stationed on the site, service and loading spaces required, handicapped spaces required, emergency access considerations and use of parking by unauthorized vehicles. D. Parking In-Lieu Program. The city may permit required parking spaces in the Village Build-Out Plan Area to be reduced through execution of a parking agreement, subject to the following requirements: 1. A binding agreement, recorded against the property, between this city and the property owner. The agreement shall contain, at a minimum, all of the following: a. The agreement shall be binding upon the parties thereto, their heirs, successors and assigns, and shall run with the land; b. A payment schedule with a payment period not exceeding four years. If an assessment/benefit or parking improvement district is 213 Ordinance No.553 Amendment to Title 9 Zoning – Village Build-Out Plan Adopted: January 3, 2017 Page 14 of 16 established, the obligation of the property owner shall become due and payable under the terms of such district; c. A cash mitigation payment. The amount per space shall be established as determined by the planning and public works divisions, plus an inflation factor. The amount will be calculated at the time of agreement execution. 2. An irrevocable offer from the property owner to participate in any future assessment/benefit or parking improvement district that may be formed in the VC or MU overly districts. 3. The money collected may be released to a city-created parking assessment/benefit or parking improvement district, or may be used in the furtherance of general parking improvements in the VC or MU overlay districts, at the option of the city. Any financial obligation issued against such property shall be reduced accordingly to the amount of mitigation money paid at the time of the district formation. 4. The property owner shall secure the mitigation payment by providing the city with a second deed of trust in the amount of the total mitigation payment. E. Incentive Based Parking Adjustments. In all districts, the following may result in a reduction in parking spaces of up to 15%, subject to approval by the planning commission: 1. Permanent, non-vegetation shade structures covering 50% of all parking spaces. 2. Increased landscaping and public spaces. 3. Pedestrian improvements not located in the right of way or project driveways. 4. Vehicular and non-vehicular connections between projects. 5. Use of pervious surfaces for drainage, or creative drainage solutions. 6. New commercial and mixed use development providing preferred parking locations for electric and other alternative fuel vehicles. 7. Developments that provide a minimum of two (2) parking spaces or 1% of the minimum number of spaces, whichever is greater, for golf carts and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV) shall receive a parking credit reduction equal to 5 percent (5%) of the standard parking spaces required for that development. 9.200.080 Permit expiration and time extensions. A. Period of Validity. The period of validity for a development review permit shall begin on the permit’s effective date as set forth in Section 9.200.060. The period of validity shall run pursuant to subsection C of this section. B. Establishment. A development review permit shall be deemed established if the following actions occur within twenty-four months of the effective date of the approval or within such other time period designated by the approval: 214 Ordinance No.553 Amendment to Title 9 Zoning – Village Build-Out Plan Adopted: January 3, 2017 Page 15 of 16 1. In the case of a development review permit where ministerial permits are required, such permits have been issued. 2. In the case of a development review permit where no ministerial permits are required, the use authorized by the permit has been established. In circumstances where a certificate of occupancy is required, such certificate has been issued. C. Expiration. A development review permit shall expire and be of no further force or effect if: 1. The permit is not established within twenty-four months of the permits effective date or such other time period designated by the permit approval, by state law or by this code; or 2. After establishment, the use or activity for which the permit was approved is discontinued or abandoned for a period of one year. D. Time Extensions. 1. Upon application before expiration of the period of validity, the original decision-making authority may grant an extension to the period of validity for up to two years if it finds that such an extension is justified by the circumstances of the project. The filing of an application for extension shall stay expiration of the permit until action is taken on the time extension by the decision-making authority unless the application has been deemed incomplete and inactive pursuant to Section 9.200.070(B). 2. Projects not requiring a time extension may be constructed in accordance with the requirements and standards in effect at the time of permit approval provided the construction complies with all project conditions of approval and all laws in effect at the time of the permit approval. However, any project or permit requiring a time extension shall conform to the requirements and standards in effect at the time the extension is granted. E. Amendments to Development Review Permits. 1. Content of Amendments. Permit amendments are required for substantial revisions to conditions of approval, alterations to approved plans which are more substantial than the modifications provided for in Section 9.200.090 new or additional land uses, or similar major changes. 2. Procedures. A development review permit may be amended any number of times by the approval of a subsequent application. All permit amendments shall be for the same parcel or property for which a development review permit was previously approved. Amendments shall be filed prior to the expiration of the previously approved permit in compliance with the same filing procedures and payment of the fee required for an amendment. Amendments shall be processed in the same manner as an original application.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY  Each year City staff reviews the events for the upcoming fiscal year and establishes the budget and plan to execute those events.  Staff now seeks to elevate the conversation to the Council in order to transform events into 21st century experiences with a set of guiding characteristics to shape future experiences.  La Quinta’s experiences are set into the categories of lifestyle, nature, health and wellness, community, and art experiences all aimed to propel the City’s brand forward. FISCAL IMPACT The City’s overall annual event direct investment is $24,500 dollars and $200,000 for staff cost (equivalent to 2.5 positions). This amount funds 71 events such as Tree Lighting, Veteran’s Day, Community Picnic, and the Egg Hunt. Some events take place over a series of occasions, such as the Golf Tour. BACKGROUND/ANALYSIS The experiences outlined in this report are executed using the same plan from previous years and promote and strengthen quality of life, tourism, and the City’s economic development objectives. As consumer markets shift, the City must adapt to sustain direction. Staff has evaluated community needs and City direction and will plan events around a 21st century experience. Staff considered the analytics from past events (Attachment 1) when making conclusions. According to market research, the future of event design includes blending traditional event planning into imagining new ways to draw in an audience and make live experiences more memorable. Over the next five years, the following elements will transform city events (Attachment 2):  Technology will play a larger role  Event hosts and attendees will seek a more authentic experience STUDY SESSION ITEM NO. 1 217  Events will shrink in size  Noninvasive branding will be paramount  Guests will become chefs  Live experiences will always be key The City would benefit from adopting a 21st century experience for all events to satisfy and exceed the needs of our community and effectively capture new markets. To provide this experience, the City will need to invest in resources, supplies, and equipment to enhance the experience. City staff suggests tailoring events to the following guiding principles based off market research:  Modern o Assure that events include today’s trends, culture, and decor.  Innovative o Introduce new ideas to refresh and enhance the participant experience and expectation.  Exciting o Establish the City as a beacon and destination for events.  Tasteful o Assure events include a wide array of cultures, traditions, and values.  Edgy but Appropriate o Push the boundaries of events without compromising City values or attendee safety. Of the City’s existing events, the City holds 71 events broken up into 5 categories known as lifestyle (dining, shopping, etc), nature (outdoors and scenery), health and wellness (healthy living), community (fellowship), and art (exploring, learning, information). Here’s the breakdown of existing events by category. Staff is seeking Council priorities regarding allocating resources on the events outlined below. 218 All of the event resources are committed and additional funds must be allocated if more events are desired this fiscal year. Further, staff is formulating recommendations regarding existing and potential new events for the coming fiscal year. Staff is requesting Council direction regarding: (1) continuing to develop 21st century event experiences, and (2) event category priorities.

ATTACHMENT 1 221 222 The Future of Event Design: What Will Live Experiences Look Like in the Next Few Years? Top planners and designers forecast the future of corporate events and meetings.

But what’s next for events and meetings? For the creatives in the field, the challenge—and the thrill—is in imagining new ways to draw in an audience and make a live experience a memorable one. Here’s what some forward -thinking designers and producers believ e will shape events and meetings in the next five years and beyond. Technology will be ubiquitous. 224 Not surprisingly, most designers forecast that event technology will get bigger and better—from holograms to Jetsons-style catering. “Our lives are so intertwined with technology at the moment; we can access anything at the touch of our fingers, and I can foresee that technology will be deeply implemented in all aspects of event design in the future,” says Jung Lee, co -founder of Fête, an event planning and design production firm based in New York. “For example, instead of waiters coming over to take down your order, it could be a completely virtual experience —pick your menu at the touch of your fingers!” And as technology advances, its price usually decreases —a win- win for the industry. Brian Worley of Santa Monica, California - based event production company YourBash predicts that costly equipment and services like video projection will become more affordable, making it accessible to more planners. “Projectors have been around for a while, but it has been a very expensive gag to pull off,” he says. “Over the next fe w years, this cool, interactive element will become widely used, as the ability to create these images becomes less expensive. This will also allow event planners to create unique spaces that otherwise would not be possible or financially feasible.” In order to impress increasingly tech -savvy (and perhaps jaded) guests, planners will need to continue to push the boundaries of event design. “What can we create that hasn’t been seen by the audience?” asks Bronson van Wyck of event production and experiential marketing company Van Wyck & Van Wyck in New York. “In the next 10 years, I think techniques like sensory projection, immersive video mapping, holograms, and touch screens will become commonplace.” Some companies have already started experimenting with Oculus Rift and holograms: Audi’s launch around the New York International Auto Show last April featured rapper M.I.A. and R&B singer Janelle Monaé performing together on stage —but from two separate locations. “Why bother flying them to your event when they could perform remotely for your event from the comfort of 225 their own studio?” Lee asks about the future of corporate event entertainers. “Being able to stream a live performance would allow event designers to tap into a global network of performers.” Hosts will seek authenticity. Many brands and companies are still looking to provide an authentic experience, with elements grounded in the past. “There are more and more requests fo r unknown venues or throwback spaces,” van Wyck says. For a Coach event celebrating the opening night of Fashion Week in September 2014, his team chose Irving Plaza in New York because of its history as a storied rock venue. “To some it may not be seen as a cutting-edge fashion venue, but the brand embraced the character and patina of the theater into their message of timelessness and authenticity,” he says. Jes Gordon, creative director and owner of Proper Fun, echoes that sentiment, saying that there’s a paradox within the industry between high-tech wizardry and a push for handmade products. The New York -based event planner also sees more clients incorporating their homes into social events—whether as a venue space or by customizing decor inspired by personal items —for that added air of realness. “You’re not just planning a party [anymore],” she says. “You’re planning a lifestyle.” Events will shrink in size. Smaller, more intimate events, such as at-home soirees, appear to be the wave of the future, with stuffy, formal affairs slowly disappearing. “I think that the sit -down, black-tie dinner is going to become less and less of a standard,” Worley says. “I think that galas and balls will become more of an opportunity for networking and socializing rather than just an hour cocktail party at the beginning of the evening, then sit down, eat, see a presentation, and leave.” Because of this, a planner’s focus (and budget) might even tually turn on its head—with the end of the night signaling the real start to the event. “The party you usually want to have is the after - party,” Gordon says. “It’s the 50 people who, if you were stranded 226 on a deserted island, you’d want to be with.” Not only it is more exclusive, it’s also a smart marketing move. Worley explains that when he first started designing events, movie premiere parties were, well, an afterthought because members of the press weren’t invited, meaning no potential media buzz. “The step-and-repeat and the press line were where a studio would get the big bang for their buck to promote the movie and the talent,” he says. But now the after-party has become more relevant with interesting, interactive decor—thanks to Instagram. “Guests are becoming the press or ambassadors of the film to their friends who follow them on social media.” Noninvasive branding will be paramount. As guests become increasingly valuable promoters, designers will continue to rely heavily on social media for an extra viral boost — for their events as well as themselves. “We are now being asked to really create experiences that are photo - and social-media- worthy for posting,“ Worley says. This is especially true for product launches and brand-centric events where the merchandise needs to be seamlessly incorporated into the decor. PULLQUOTE “You’re not just planning a party [anymore]. You’re planning a lifestyle.” TWEET THIS QUOTE This type of thoughtful, pragmatic planning will remain the cornerstone of event design, says Mircea Manea, principal at San Francisco-based event design and rental firm Blueprint Studios. “The utilization of bold color blended with a variety of mixed textures offset by accent pieces that either give purpose to their placement or serve as noninvasive branding represents a basic outline in building a successful corporate event design,” he says. 227 Plus, it makes a successful, shareable image for clients. “The saying ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ is becoming very evident,” Worley adds, “a nd in the next five to 10 years, as technology develops and we have more outlets for social media to be expressed, this will only become more of an important element in the design of events.” Guests will become the chefs. In terms of catering, expect do -it-yourself menus to evolve. And as food allergies and restrictions become more common, highly personalized catering will be a must, Worley says. “First there was the buffet, now we are dealing with the food station, but I believe that in the next few years, these food stations are going to become completely interactive,” he says. “Guests will get to pick and choose all the ingredients that they will be consuming and become the chef for their own individual meals.” Lee agrees, adding: “Clients are developing a much more sophisticated palate, and they’re educated about food. They know that they don’t have to settle for a menu set by the venue.” Designers will create floral environments, not centerpieces. Even an organic staple—flowers—will succumb to high-tech tinkering. “When it comes to florals, we can essentially create any kind of flower we envision thanks to technology,” Lee says. “Unique flowers can be bred, customized according to our hearts’ desires, and housed in temperature-controlled environments until the right time.” Plus, presentation will grow in new ways. “I see flowers being used in iconic ways, where it is less about the centerpiece and more about the environment you create … [with] vertical, almost art-like installations,” says Todd Fiscus, founder of Dallas-based event design firm Todd Events. The live experience will always be key. Despite the technological innovations and food trends, the goal of an event—bringing people together—will continue to remain. “Future events will demand more from us creatively as we will need to focus on ways that we can design environments that are inclusive and celebrate the cultural and social diversities versus 228 isolating those with different needs or lifestyles,” Manea says. Lee agrees, adding, “Regardless of what happens in five or 10 years, it is always the designer’s job to continually produce creative, integrated designs [and] to create experiences that are one -of-a- kind and memorable.” 229 230 Report to La Quinta City Council Palm Springs International Airport Commission Meeting December 21, 2016 Budget: Expenses are going according to plan, but revenues lag, due to the timing of airline payments. Revenues are expected to come on strong during the season. Unrestricted cash is still on target for $4-5 million at year-end. We continue to pay down old bonds at high interest rates. . Passenger Activity: November’s passenger activity was up 14.2% from last year, making the YTD activity up by 5.5%. General: 1. Drones: Drone regulations have continued to be refined, and I have to restate that the only way to get the latest information is through the FAA’s website. 2. The Commission completed the 5-year Capital Improvement plan, and approved it for submission to the FAA. TNC (Lyft, Uber, etc): The Palm Springs City Council, at it’s last meeting, approved the plan for regulating these services. The Commission and Management await instructions for implementing it. Ticketing Terminal Project: The re-design and re-model of the ticketing terminal will be done in two phases: the summers of 2017 and 2018. During this process, the existing counters will be moved back 15 feet, allowing more room in the passenger area. The ceiling will be raised up to 14 feet. There is currently a suspended ceiling, which is much lower. Baggage handling and TSA inspection areas will be streamlined, and will provide redundancy in case of a failure. Additionally, we are installing underground baggage out to the airport security area. If we decide to implement it, this will allow us to be the first airport in the nation to allow in-car check-in and baggage checking at a kiosk near the airport entry. Next Meeting: The next meeting is scheduled for January 18. . Submitted: _________________________ Robert G.

The recommendations included the addition of five conditions to the conditions of approval. SilverRock Development Company is in general acceptance of these conditions, but suggests the modifications proposed on the attached page. Our reasoning for the modifications is as follows: Mesquite Trees – Mesquites are one of four tree species native to the Coachella Valley. While we understand wind and maintenance concerns, the design team feels it would be short‐sighted to eliminate mesquites across the board. We agree that mesquites could be eliminated from parking areas. However, in other areas there should be discretion to us e t h e m , s u b j e c t t o p r o p e r installation with deep watering for establishment of good root a n c h o r s y s t e m s a n d r e g u l a r m a i n t e n a n c e . W i t h p r o p e r i n s t a l l a t i o n , c a r e , a n d m a i n t e n a n c e , mesquites should be a suitable material. Vertical Landscape Elements – The design team understands the philosophy of using vertical plant elements to screen certain building elements like stairs from view and soften the massing of structures. We are confident the architect and landscape architect can present appropriate solutions to this concern as the drawings move forward into the completion of the schematic and design development phases, and will work with your staff accordingly. Building Material Colors – The main context of the discussion at the Planning Commission in this area seemed to focus on colors related to building accents like stone and pre‐cast, rather than suggesting a wholesale change to the field colors of the buildings themselves. This is of great concern, as we believe there has been a generally positive reaction to the white/off‐white building field colors, which we feel are essential to the freshness of this design in the desert, appropriate to the architecture, and comfortable on the site. We have much territory to cover yet in the completion of schematic and design development and are receptive to looking at appropriate changes to any proposed building accent colors with the staff. Room Dimensions – We believe the confusion over the appropriateness of the room sizes was precipitated by the lack of square footages and dimensions on the room modules provided in the DISTRIBUTED TO COUNCIL ON 01/03/2017 AND MADE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE BUSINESS SESSION ITEM NO. 1 ADDITIONAL EXHIBIT NO. C SDP package. The revised plates, with dimensions and square footages, were presented to the staff today. We are extremely confident in the sizing and programming of these rooms for the Lifestyle Hotel product contemplated, which has been derived in close collaboration with our operator. Therefore, we’re comfortable that the product is entirely approp r i a t e f o r S i l v e r R o c k a n d t h e market. Golf Clubhouse – We would welcome the opportunity to organize a design workshop with the design team and the city to address these concerns. We’re confident the programmatic and operational challenges are readily surmountable. Best regards, SilverRock Development Company, LLC Robert S.
