Board and Committees Events Governance

2023 annual meeting held April 22

Thank you to all who attended our Annual General Membership meeting, helping to make it another successful event in our short history as the 48th organized neighborhood in Palm Springs. A special thank you to Mario Bucacci-Pezzullo for his service to the Board and welcome to our newest Board member, Kristen Maschka.

Mayor Grace Garner and police Lt. Mike Villegas (shown during and prior to the meeting) and our district council member, Lisa Middleton, joined us at the Pavilion in Sunrise Park for the meeting. You can see the full agenda on our documents page, where we also will post the minutes once approved by the new Board.


Boundaries reduced

A Special General Membership Meeting on Nov. 9, 2020 amended the Canyon Palms Neighborhood Organization bylaws to reduce the boundaries to exclude Canyon Estates. That HOA’s board requested the change, and the CPNO board voted on Oct. 19 to approve it and present it to the entire membership.

All residents and property owners were invited to participate in the special meeting. ONE-PS hosted a videoconference on Zoom with about 80 participants, including 74 recorded as official members, easily a quorum. A majority voted for the motion without dissent.


ONE-PS recognizes Canyon Palms

The Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs (ONE-PS) voted unanimously during its Nov. 14 monthly meeting to officially recognize Canyon Palms as the city’s 48th organized neighborhood.

The official recognition was by voice vote.

Official recognition clears the way for neighborhood representatives to set up meetings with community policing officers and city officials to discuss common concerns such as public safety and code compliance. Also, Canyon Palms directors are now invited to seminars, workshops and retreats that ONE-PS puts on to train and educate community leaders and volunteers.

Inaugural General Membership Meeting held on October 26, 2019

The months-long process of forming the Canyon Palms Neighborhood culminated in an Inaugural General Membership Meeting on Oct. 26, 2019 at the city’s fire training facility. The standing-room-only crowd represented 58 residences. These inaugural members voted 31-19 to request recognition of the neighborhood by ONE-PS, the organized neighborhoods of Palm Springs. The meeting also elected directors and named the neighborhood. Minutes of the meeting are available online here.
