Pascua Yaqui Tribe announces expansion projects at gaming facilities in Arizona

The Pascua Yaqui Tribe announced plans to expand its two gaming facilities in southern Arizona.

The Casino Del Sol will be seeing a hotel with up to 150 additional rooms, 90 additional recreational vehicle sites and an expansion of the convention space. A second facility, the Casino of the Sun, will be getting an events center.

"The Pascua Yaqui Tribe is honored to have the opportunity to build new accommodations and meeting spaces for guests who visit our properties," Chairman Robert Valencia said in a press release. "These additions will create more jobs and will positively impact our tribe, its members, and Southern Arizona."

The hotel at the Casino Del Sol will be built adjacent to the facility and will include a pool area, according to the press release. The conference center will be expanding by another 9,600 square-feet.

The events center at the Casino of the Sun will feature 11,000 square-feet of space. It will be built adjacent to the facility.

The tribe is not disclosing the cost of the project at this time.
