The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians are pulling out of negotiations with the Town of Windsor over a wastewater treatment deal. Instead of using the town’s wastewater treatment system, the Lytton Band will seek to create a new treatment plant right next to their planned neighborhood west of Windsor’s Deer Creek neighborhood. The tribe plans to build 300 homes for tribal members and eventually a 130-room resort, restaurants and winery. Money that would have been used by the Town of Windsor in the deal would’ve gone towards the construction of a new public recreation center with a pool. Had the final deal gone through, the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians would have paid Windsor $16.5-million to use the town’s sewage treatment system.
