During the council meeting, City Manager Jessie Flores presented the agenda item, highlighting the historical significance of card clubs in Adelanto. “On September 22, 1992, the City of Adelanto adopted Section 5.16 into its municipal code, allowing the operation of Card Clubs. Now, we have updated the ordinance to meet contemporary standards and attract potential card clubs,” stated Flores.

The last card club in Adelanto, the Hi Desert Casino, had a run from 1975 to 1997.
