The Smoketree Commons EIR was a project-level document examining an 188,246 square foot retail project located in the City of Palm Springs. The project site is located along a well traveled thoroughfare with high visibility. The back of the project backs was cited immediately adjacent to a residential neighborhood. Visual impacts were a key concern both along the thoroughfare and from neighbors.
The EIR included visual simulations to depict before and after views of the site from key view points. Staff served as Project Manager and Project Planner(s) on this project assisting with preparation of the EIR.
