Lytton concerns

I would like to provide some corrections, and additional information, with regard to your March 2, 2017 front page story about Lytton Rancheria, and its purchase of Salvation Army at Lytton Springs.

With an estimated $260 million in annual proceeds from their San Pablo casino, the Lytton have acquired over 500 acres west of Windsor (as opposed to east of Windsor, which your article stated). The land is along Windsor River Road, Eastside Road, and Starr Road, and includes non-contiguous parcels. The land includes both Healdsburg and Windsor addresses. (Eastside Road is Healdsburg.)

According to the Lytton Band’s 2015 Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the County of Sonoma, the Lytton propose to build 361 homes, a 200 room hotel, restaurants, spa, wedding area, meeting and banquet facilities, gift shops, a 200,000 case winery and event center on rural and agricultural land outside of Windsor’s Urban Growth Boundary. This is a major commercial development.
