Tribe's Palm Springs plan may go before voters
Friday, April 30, 2004

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians master plan for land it owns in Palm Springs, California, may go before voters.

The tribe owns a square-mile section known as Section 14 that it plans to turn into a residential and entertainment district. The land is held in trust and the tribe doesn't need local or state approval to develop.

But in response to complaints by residents, who drafted a petition calling for a vote, Palm Springs officials might end up asking voters for their views.

The tribe stripped the master plan of any references to casinos or large-scale development, such as high rises.
