The San Pablo Avenue corridor is set for a transformational change to facilitate the development of a “City Center” for the City of Palm Desert. As part of the City’s recent General Plan update this 1-mile corridor, which connects Magnesia Falls in the north to El Paseo in the south, is set for a complete street design that will reduce a vehicle lane in each direction, install round-a-bouts at key intersections, expand on-street parking, provide expansive bicycle lanes and pedestrian sidewalks, and add street trees and textural elements to create a true sense of place.
Eric Ceja is the Principal Planner for the City of Palm Desert’s Community Development Department and a life-long resident of the Coachella Valley. He currently leads a team at Palm Desert City Hall tasked to transform the San Pablo Avenue corridor into a complete street that balances the needs of motorists, bicyclist, and pedestrians. Before joining the City of Palm Desert, Mr. Ceja worked for the City of La Quinta, and Mead & Hunt, Inc in Santa Rosa, Ca. Mr. Ceja currently serves as Planning Commission for the City of Indio. Mr. Ceja has bachelor degrees in Economics and Environmental Studies and Planning from Sonoma State University, and a master’s degree in Public Administration from California State University San Bernardino.
