Sycuan wants land added to reservation


The Sycuan Indian band is seeking to triple the size of its reservation just east of El Cajon by annexing 2,000 acres it owns, including a former sand mine, a golf course and a hotel. The proposal to bring the land into the reservation would take it off property tax rolls and outside the jurisdiction of county land-use decisions, giving the tribal government power over what happens there.
