The Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians is one of the six federally recognized Luiseno tribes and are headquartered in Riverside County. Their lands were taken in 1776 during the Juan Batista de Anza expedition and returned in 1883 when California became part of the United States.
The Soboba Band built an economy based on agriculture including citrus and apricots. Since that time, the tribe has developed a golf course and country club, condominium resort and casino on reservation land in San Jacinto, California. Current work on the reservation includes a new casino, hotel, sports complex, fire station and associated infrastructure such as roadways and utilities.
Geocon was retained by the tribe during design and construction of the new 6,500-square-foot fire station. The 2019 opening of the fire station marks a significant increase in fire safety for the reservation and surrounding communities.
