The community of Thermal, southeast of Indio, is home to one of Riverside County’s largest airports, the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport. Necessary infrastructure – a new Sheriff’s station, roads, streets, sewers and a new fire station – is being constructed as part of the county’s $90 million investment in the community. New road, water, sewer and electrical lines created for some of these projects will be key catalysts to attracting businesses and further development in the region. To govern future development, Riverside County has created Thermal Design Guidelines to ensure a consistent “Thermal” look that reflects the area’s agricultural influence.
