Rincon wants to expand its San Diego-area casino

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) - The Rincon Band of Mission Indians has plans to expand its casino in northern San Diego County that will include a 21-story hotel tower.

The North County Times reports Friday that the tribe's environmental report recently issued to federal regulators would nearly double the size of the casino and hotel. Among the other additions is a nightclub and concert venue.

A public meeting on the project will be held Wednesday.

Rincon won a lawsuit last year against the state that will allow it to increase the number of slot machines in its casino. The tribe didn't say in the report how many slots would be added under the expansion.
