Oakland's proposed Indian Casino is officially dead

May 21, 2008

OAKLAND - The Lower Lake Rancheria Koi Nation had previously proposed building a Las Vegas-style hotel and casino on 35 acres near Oakland International Airport. In 2005 they decided to end the project after fierce opposition from Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley and San Leandro. The Koi Nation is a landless tribe with about 50 members of mostly Pomo ancestry.

On Monday the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs closed their books on the project by cancelling work on an environmental review and publishing that decision in the federal register.

Two other East Bay proposals are still alive and proceeding through the federal review process. The Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians have applied to build a casino in North Richmond, and the Guidiville Band of Pomo Indians have applied for one at Point Molate.
