Ariz. tribe hopes to keep tourism dollars at home

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation is hoping new projects will draw tourists to the reservation and keep them there.

The tribe is breaking ground tomorrow on a 247-room resort and 23,000-square-foot conference center that will open by October 2005. A neighboring recreational vehicle park is opening in October of this year.

The tribe operates a casino, a golf course and an outdoor cookout and Western entertainment venue.
