ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The brand new Santa Ana Star Casino and Hotel is expected to bring new jobs and economic growth when it opens on the Fourth of July.


Santa Ana Pueblo officials provided a sneak peek at the new hotel, which they say will create 230 jobs on the pueblo. It's just one of a number of new buildings and businesses going up in and around Bernalillo.

"You see the casino/hotel right there, and then all of a sudden you see this and this and this and it's like, 'Where did this come from?'" local resident Ammi Jimenez said.

A new Bosque Brewing establishment is also expected to open just down the road from the casino. The hope is that the pueblo, Bernalillo and surrounding areas become more of a travel destination.
