Rancheria has no immediate plans to build on newly purchased ranch


The Redding Rancheria paid $4 million for the Lowry Ranch property near its Win-River Casino, but has no immediate plans to develop the 64-acre parcel, CEO Tracy Edwards said. "We are keeping our options open," Edwards said this week. The Rancheria bought the property just north of Clear Creek, which borders the casino off Highway 273, from the McConnell Foundation. The Redding nonprofit philanthropic organization had owned the property since 1996.
