Calif. tribe hopes advert dispels rumors about project
Thursday, March 18, 2004

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians began running a television special on Wednesday aimed at dispelling rumors about its plans in Palm Springs, California.

The 30-minute advertisement, in the form of a newsmagazine show, talks about the tribe's plans for land in the city's downtown. Although the land is held in trust, the tribe has sought public input into plans to develop what is called Section 14.

A group called Citizens for Local Government Accountability is opposing development, claiming the tribe will raze homes and build high rises and possibly a casino.
