As City Manager, I would like to welcome you to the city of Indio. We are a community with a rich tradition and offer a wide variety of quality city services which include police and fire protection, maintenance of streets and infrastructure, water, parks and special events for the community.
Indio is the Coachella Valley’s oldest and fastest-growing city with a population of more than 85,000 residents. It is nicknamed the “City of Festivals” because through special events the city draws in more than 1 million people annually to festivals in Indio like Coachella Fest, Stagecoach Country Music Festival, the National Date Festival, Palm Springs Kennel Club Dog Show and the Southwest Arts Festival®. It is the second county-seat for Riverside County, which makes Indio the Coachella Valley’s center for business, government and entertainment activity.
Indio has the largest number of people under the age of 18 and takes great pride in serving its senior population. The city is home to award winning teen and senior centers, which provide exciting program, amenities and activities for Indio’s youth and senior populations.
The city provides strong municipal services and support to help businesses grow. We urge new business prospects to come on board and enjoy the advantages of doing business in Indio. Some of the advantages in Indio include low cost utilities, quality public services, tax benefits from enterprise and empowerment zones and a chamber of commerce that is committed to the success of the business community.
Indio’s city government works hard to serve its residents and greater community. At the city, the goal is to have good roads to drive on, fun parks to play in, great shops to buy goods in and a safe community to raise our kids and grandkids in.
I hope you enjoy all the city has to offer and please contact city hall or the Indio Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center should you have any questions about services or events in the city.
