Pala Band Ready to Close Deal on Ranch

The Pala Band of Mission Indians intends to finalize a deal to buy the 2,500-acre Warner Springs Ranch, a hot springs, spa and golf resort in San Diego county, for $20.5 million, reported the North County Times. The resort, which operates as a private club for its members, was established in 1844.

The resort is part of the Pala Band’s “aboriginal, or ancestral land,” according to Doug Elmets, a spokesman for the Pala Band, reported the North County Times.

The deal has been stalled by legal challenges from the 1,400 equity owners of 2,000 deeds held on ranch property. They have disputed boundaries to property titles passed down through generations, said Dave Lowe, general manager of Warner Springs, to the North County Times. If the deal goes through, the tribe plans to make extensive renovations to Warner Springs Ranch, which is why the resort has laid off nearly half its 150 workers in recent months.

The Pala Band of Mission Indians also operates a casino, Pala Casino Resport & Spa, and 90-acres of avocado groves on its 12,273-acre reservation, reported the North County Times.
