Director of Economic Development Highlights: Indio’s Next Act

About $200 million has been invested to help the downtown area make a comeback, featuring a lineup of vibrant stores, housing and restaurants to attract residents and visitors.

The downtown renaissance is already underway with new development. The opening acts include new businesses replacing empty storefronts and adding new spaces for food and fun. The coming attractions include a brewery, taproom, coffee shop, and four restaurants.

Enjoy early access to the new Downtown Indio and explore a unique outdoor “living room” at Miles Avenue and Smurr Street. This VIP area for all offers a safe space for the community to gather with family and friends to enjoy food, live music, lectures, performances, movies, and fitness classes. The entertainment space comes alive each month during the free Second Saturdays concert series.

There’s much more to come on the playlist. Indio is collaborating with the private sector by providing incentives to attract business. Along with support for tenant improvements, the city is in the process of painting and sprucing up municipal buildings on Miles Avenue and Oasis Street.
