Plans for a Vegas style casino resort are a step closer for the Federated
Indians of Graton Rancheria. A parcel of land, consisting of 254 acres, was put
into trust on Friday by the Department of Interiorís Bureau of Indian Affairs.
By removing the land from county jurisdiction by the federal department, the
land will be made part of the tribal reservation. Allowing the tribe the
opportunity to build a future casino.
Supporters of the new casino project state it will help the local economy. It
will also help the tribe. The project plans call for 2,000 slot machines. There
are also plans for a 300 guest room hotel.
A gaming compact with the governorís office still needs to be negotiated before
additional steps can be made towards the casino project.
