The Indio Climate Action Plan (CAP) is a roadmap for how the City will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  This CAP quantifies greenhouse gas emissions from the Indio 2040 General Plan, describes the scientific and regulatory context, analyzes strategies and actions within the General Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and specifies a group of measures to achieve the greenhouse gas targets established by the plan. These measures support a healthy and vibrant community.

Welcome to the Indio General Plan website

The City of Indio is embarking on the final phase of the General Plan Update. This twelve-month process will refine the depth and clarity of Plan content, and conduct the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process and public review process. The General Plan is a policy document required by California law that provides long-range guidance for land use, development, transportation, open space conservation, affordable housing, economic development, community services and other topics. The Indio General Plan update will serve as the City's blueprint for future development and decision-making.
