WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR & CITY COUNCIL
On behalf of the Palm Springs City Council, I invite you to join us May 15 – 18, 2019 for the Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) Conference at the magnificent Palm Springs Convention Center. We are honored to have been selected as the host city for NUSA’s 44th Annual Conference and look forward to sharing our diverse, inclusive, vibrant community with our conference attendees.
Palm Springs is comprised of 45 organized neighborhoods, each operating under the umbrella organization, Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs (ONE-PS). The City’s Office of Neighborhoods Manager is the liaison between the organized neighborhoods and the City, working with staff in the Planning, Engineering, Building & Safety, Code Compliance, Police, Fire and other departments in an effort to create the best possible quality of life for residents and visitors.
Once you’ve had the opportunity to stroll historic Palm Canyon Drive through our revitalized downtown, take a breathtaking ride to the top of Mt. San Jacinto on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, experience VillageFest, our popular Thursday night street fair featuring arts, crafts, food and entertainment, enjoy the warm, star-filled desert nights, you’ll know why Palm Springs is truly, “Like No Place Else.”
We look forward to seeing you in 2019!

Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs (ONE-PS) is comprised of representative ONE PS logos from the 43 recognized Neighborhood Organizations in Palm Springs. Each recognized Neighborhood Organization is represented by one voting member and one alternate member.
Each month ONE-PS meets to discuss issues that affect citizens and other neighborhood interests. Our goal is to inform and exchange ideas in order to improve process, communi- cations, and outcomes or to encourage new programs or services.
Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month at 8 a.m. Please check the calendar for the location of the meetings. Public Comments take place at the top of the agenda. The ONE-PS agendas and minutes are posted online
Please join with us to make Palm Springs an even better place to live, work and play. As an individual we are a solo voice, as a group we are a chorus.
WELCOME FROM THE AGUA CALIENTE BAND OF CAHUILLA INDIANS TRIBAL COUNCIL
On behalf of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2019 NUSA Conference in Palm Springs, California. Palm Springs has been home to my ancestors for thousands of years – ever since the fi rst Cahuilla occupied the majestic Tahquitz Canyon, where these first “neighbor- hoods” were nestled in the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains, not far from what is now downtown Palm Springs.
The mark of our tribe is interwoven with the Palm Springs community. Its neighborhood names, Andreas, Baristo and Chino – all paying tribute to those who came before us. We navigate our neighborhoods on streets named Patencio, La Verne, Belardo, Amado, Saturmino and Arenas – all honoring our predecessors. Other streets bear the names Mesquite, Chuckwalla or Tahquitz – recognizing and immortalizing components of our culture.
We look forward to introducing you to our culture and sharing our history and the natural wonders of our ancestral lands when you visit the desert during the 2019 NUSA Conference.
