Cathedral City considers relocating Palm Springs Elks Lodge

Update 4/3/24 - 7:00 PM

The Cathedral City Planning Commission unanimously approved the proposal.

Original Report 4/3/24 - 11:15 AM

Cathedral City’s Planning Commission is considering a project that would provide a new location for the Palm Springs Elks Lodge #1905. 

In March, a vacant building that previously housed the Palm Springs Elks Lodge was seriously damaged in a fire that took the lives of three people

The Cathedral City Police Department provided the following statement regarding the ongoing fire investigation.

"There has not been any significant update regarding the cause of the fire at the Elks Lodge. Currently, our investigators along with investigators from Cal Fire are still trying to determine the cause of the fire. Due to the extent of the damage and evidence to be examined, there isn’t a specific time frame for the investigation to be completed. Investigators will examine all the available evidence before coming to a conclusion of cause, or determining there isn’t sufficient evidence to determine a cause.  Since this incident resulted in the loss of life, investigators are being methodical in examining all the evidence, which can take a significant amount time."

During their Wednesday meeting, the city’s Planning Commission will review the Palm Springs Elks Lodge’s proposal to move the private club into an old Reilly's Irish Pub on Date Palm Drive.

If approved, the project would be split into two phases. According to the city, “...the first phase would include reconstruction of the bar in its existing location, and the second phase would include the replacement of the kitchen in its existing location, as well as the construction of offices and storage spaces.”
