CRESCENT CITY, CA - The Elk Valley Rancheria plan to build a new destination resort on their 200-acre Martin Ranch property in Crescent City about 20 miles south of the Oregon border.
Elk Valley Chairman Dale Miller stated: "The Tribe is embracing this new destination resort as a major element of a 20-year master plan and a key piece of our Tribal growth strategy. We believe strongly in the resort's long-term success based on its stunning location. It will be a catalyst for complex business development and job creation for the Tribe, as well as community-wide economic advancement."
The Elk Valley Tribe solicited design proposals from 14 firms and announced this week it had selected Hnedak Bobo Group (HBG) Architects, recognized as a top ten design firm within the national casino resort and hospitality design industry. The company has worked on projects with more than 25 Native American tribes.
Dan Elias, HBG, said, "The Tribe's site is ideal for a resort development.
Our team will ensure that the design integrates the magnificent scenery and the right mix of amenities to attract Elk Valley's target market."
