Construction Begins with a New
Parking Garage

IMG_1763

We are excited to share that construction on the San Manuel Hotel Expansion Project is now underway, beginning with the building of a new parking structure and the temporary closure of a guest walkway and access lane.
Due to construction on the new parking structure, the southern parking lot has been permanently closed and perimeter security fencing has been installed. At this time, San Manuel is taking steps to redirect traffic around the casino footprint to help guests and nearby residents maintain a safe distance from construction zones.

In addition, the sidewalk on the west side of Victoria Avenue and a traffic lane from the

existing casino parking garage have been closed. To ensure everyone’s safety, the Tribe asks that pedestrians use the sidewalk on the east side of Victoria Avenue, north of Lynwood Drive, and to observe directional signage. The expansion project is expected to bring a great many job opportunities to our community; approximately 1,400 jobs during construction and 1,200 new permanent jobs when opened. The expansion is adjacent to the current casino facility and will include a luxurious hotel, stateof the-art entertainment venue, new amenities, including a world class spa and pool experience, a collection of premium restaurants and retail shops, as well as a parking garage.    (See Expansion on page 2)  


Bulletin

Expansion

“We couldn’t be more humbled and proud to start this new project, one that embodies the new growth and revitalization of Yaamava’,meaning spring, a season that brings new life and boundless potential. This time of renewal is an opportunity to recommit ourselves to the words of our ancestors to ‘never forget who we are or where we came from,’” said Lynn Valbuena, Chairwoman of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. “In keeping with our core value of Unity, this project gains its success through the collaboration, dedication and commitment of all the San Manuel team members, patrons, community supporters, and construction partners.”

Capt Lawhead
Welcome Capt. Lawhead, Farewell Capt. Maass

We would like to welcome police Capt. Richard Lawhead as the new patrol commander for our area. Capt. Lawhead has been with the San Bernardino Police Department (SBPD) since 1992 and currently serves the Quality of Life and Community Affairs Divisions. In his career he has served a number of assignments including Problem Oriented Policing, Bicycle Mounted Enforcement, Motor Officer and Cargo Theft Investigator. We would also like to thank Capt. Ron Maass for his years of service to our area and to the City of San Bernardino. Captain Maass is the outgoing patrol commander who has retired after a 23-year career with the SBPD. We appreciate Capt. Maass’ commitment to serving as the SBPD liaison for communities neighboring the San Manuel Reservation. Whether it was at Coffee with a Cop or personal outreach, he made our neighborhood a priority. Capt. Lawhead can be reached by calling (909) 384-5606, or email lawhead_ri@sbcity.org
