    Sycuan starts new business project
    Construction has started on the new Sycuan Square project on the Sycuan Reservation in southeast El Cajon!
    Ground was broken last week on the first phase of the project, which includes a 5,500 square-foot convenience store and a gas station of about 1,600 square feet, according to the Sycuan Tribal Development Council (STDC). They’re set to open in September 2019.
    Sycuan Square will be at the corner of Dehesa Road near the Sycuan Golf Resort at 3007 Dehesa Road.
    Still to come are moving the Sycuan Medical and Dental Center to Sycuan Square, which will have space for mixed-use and retail business.
    Joshua Muse, STCD board chairman, and Cody Martinez, Sycuan Tribal Council Chairman, praised the project for the improvements it will make to the tribe’s economic security. 
    Martinez said in a statement that the first phase of the project will generate tax revenues for the tribe that will go to “essential government programs and services such as schools, roads and water infrastructure.”
