In an effort to beautify Downtown Indio and reduce blight to help market City- or Successor Agency-owned properties in the area that are for sale, the City of Indio has recently installed new window art showcasing 10 different images.
The images reflect Downtown events (such as the Chalk Festival, Tamale Festival and the Heritage Festival) as well as the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival and the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival and Stagecoach Festival.
Stroll Miles Avenue to see the artwork, and be sure to shop and dine in Downtown Indio while you’re there! Artwork can be found at the following locations:
In the future, the City plans to meet with some of the private property owners in Downtown Indio, as well, to see if they might be interested in participating in this process to beautify an area of Indio that has great potential for redevelopment. The City is also looking to do some outreach with the community to explore additional community images or designs.
If anyone is interested in purchasing property in Downtown Indio, contact Carl Morgan, the Director of Economic Development, at 760-541-420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
