GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Tohono O’odham Nation’s plan to open the Desert Diamond West Valley Resort casino by the end of the year, has construction crews working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the project.
More than 70 sub-contractors have worked on the job, and at any given time, there are more than 250 workers on site said Randy Howe, Desert Diamond project director.
With yearly revenues from the casino estimated at $300 million Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Edward D. Manuel, said they hope “it’s going to generate enough revenue for the Nation, for the city of Glendale and for the state of Arizona.
“We’re looking at sharing all these revenues,” he added, and not only are they going to share revenues with all the whole community around the development, besides their tribal community, but, he said the project will also create economic development in the surrounding area.
