Pauma Band takes comments on proposed casino

The Pauma Band of Mission Indians held a public hearing on its plans for a new casino.

The tribe wants to replace Casino Pauma with a larger facility. The new casino would include 110,000 square-feet of gaming space, a 400-room hotel, a spa and pool area and a parking garage.

Neighbors expressed concerns about increased traffic. They also are worried about the water the tribe needs for the new facility.

The tribe is working with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut on the project.
