Vista Santa Rosa; Eastern Coachella Valley. When people come to our beautiful Coachella Valley, most of them know the Desert cities named Palm Springs, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Cat City, Indio, and some even know about Thermal and Coachella in our East Valley. Vista Santa Rosa, an unincorporated area of approx. 20 sq. miles in size, is a special part of our Eastern Coachella Valley, and it is a rare occurrence that visitors know anything at all about the unincorporated Policy Area called Vista Santa Rosa.
The VSR (Vista Santa Rosa), community was recognized by the County Board of Supervisors in 2001. Community boundaries extend from Avenue 50 on the North, Monroe on the West, Harrison St. on the East, and Avenue 66 on the South. VSR is adjacent to the Cities of Thermal, Coachella, Indio and La Quinta. It is also connected via trails to Lake Cahuilla, and Torres-Martinez Tribal Lands. The area is an important producer of Date crops, and Rural Residential ad uses are prevalent, with an emphasis on Equestrian Lifestyles. (Courtesy of Co. of Riverside General Plan)
Within the Vista Santa Rosa Policy Area, the minimum Lot size in the Agricultural designation is 5 acres with 2 dwelling units/Acre, and 5 horses/acre. The Community Development Overlay area allows for conversion of farm land to other uses, with an overal density range within this overlay area of 1-3 dwelling units/acre.
