Palm Springs, don’t buy back the land you gave to COD

A view looking north from Tramview Road of the College of the Desert property in North Palm Springs.

Fool me once, shame on you. Twice a fool, shame on me.

We fear that Palm Springs is about to be fooled again by College of the Desert. The townspeople should not stand for this.

Palm Springs has sent the College of the Desert a $5.7 million offer to buy just under 120 acres of land in the city’s north end, once COD’s West Valley campus. The situation? COD must agree to build its long-proposed West Valley campus at its current proposed location, the former site of the Palm Springs Mall, and operate within the originally planned scope.

But this is the same land that Palm Springs bought and gave to COD a decade ago. The city purchased the land from the Department of the Interior for $2.1 million, then transferred it to COD at no cost in 2010 with the intention of building a COD campus.
