Canyon Palms

Welcome to Canyon Palms, established in November 2019 as the 48th organized neighborhood of Palm Springs.

Latest News and Events

Community-wide Estate Sale

Saturday, Oct. 23. Sellers should sign up NOW to participate. If you want to sell some old clothing, collectibles, or anything else you might find at a garage sale, this is your best opportunity of the year.

  • We obtain the permit from the city.
  • We advertise the sale on websites with a total reach of more than 20,000 people.
  • We provide maps and street corner placards to direct buyers to your home.
  • You keep the sale proceeds.

Sellers pay $22 to participate, and that money helps fund our future neighborhood activities. You must pay by using the online form below, which allows us to accept donations by credit card, PayPal, Venmo, Apple Pay and Google Pay. The donation platform, Givebutter, will ask you for a “tip,” but it’s entirely up to you whether you want to add a small amount to your donation to cover this convenience.

The day of the sale, participants should plan on beginning setup at 7 a.m. But planning already has begun. In order to obtain the permit and place the advertising, we need you to sign up now. In addition to paying, you should  email your full name and address to the estate sale coordinator, our neighbor Sanford Cohen, along with photos of your best items. These will be advertised (without your name and address) on websites like EstateSales.net.

If you don’t have much to sell, but want to participate anyway to meet new neighbors, please let Sanford know. We need some homeowners to offer their driveways to neighbors in the Canyon South One HOA, which does not allow garage sales on its property.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If Sanford doesn’t have your name and address on the permit application he submits the week of Oct. 11 and you decide to participate anyway, the city’s code enforcement officer can cite you for a permit violation.


Save the date: General Membership Meeting, Saturday, November 13, at the Palm Springs Fire Training Facility, 3000 E. Alejo Road, 10 a.m. to noon.


Our inaugural General Membership Meeting was Oct. 26, 2019. Our bylaws call for Annual General Membership Meetings in the first calendar quarter. Although ONE-PS has waived that requirement during the pandemic, we hope to schedule a virtual General Membership Meeting to achieve a satisfactory resolution of all issues involved in changing the boundaries.

The Canyon Palms Neighborhood Organization is a group of neighbors organized to address a range of issues for the purpose of maintaining and improving the livability and character of the Canyon Palms neighborhood by encouraging neighborhood identity and participation. The Canyon Palms Neighborhood Organization also facilitates communication with the City of Palm Springs through its active involvement as an officially recognized Neighborhood Organization and Member of Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs (ONE-PS).

Neighborhood policing officers Shelby Jiles and Jacob Valdivia address the Inaugural General Membership Meeting.
