Economic Development

La Quinta has long been recognized for its world-class golf, thriving arts community (including the award-winning La Quinta Arts Festival), unparalleled quality of life, and strong consumer base – all contributing to La Quinta’s bright economic outlook.  Many national retailers have located in La Quinta alongside thriving small businesses.  With close proximity to the Thermal Club, which is “…the premier private motorsports facility in the world” and now also hosts a new BMW Performance Center, La Quinta is a prime location for high end retail and restaurants as well.

La Quinta has it all – a growing population; a large winter/spring seasonal population; retail synergy along its Highway 111 corridor; charming boutique shops and restaurants in its Village area; tourism; and a variety of recreational opportunities. La Quinta has been called "the golf capital of the world" with a variety of spectacular courses open to the public, and has been the “Host City" for the PGA Tour's CareerBuilder Challenge (formerly the Bob Hope Classic).  The City's SilverRock Resort - featuring the Arnold Palmer Classic Course - has won accolades as one of the top tour and municipal courses.  City Council recently approved a $420 million resort project at SilverRock, complete with a 4-star luxury hotel, lifestyle hotel, luxury residential and a promenade mixed-use village.  The project is set to break ground in late 2016.
