North Fork Casino approved to move forward

December 04, 2012

Approval was given on Friday by the federal government to the North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians to build a casino.

Previously, the U.S. Department of Interior had agreed to place land into trust for the tribe. In September, state governor, Jerry Brown had given approval to the proposed casino project.

An agreement was previously made between the tribe and Stations Casinos, Inc to operate the casino once completed. The partnership was made in 2003. This will be the second Indian casino in the state to be operated by Station Casinos.

In 1915 the tribe was recognized by the federal government. Tribal land consisted of 61 acres in North Fork. However, the tribe felt that the land was not a good location for the casino. They needed an area that would be easier for visitors to get to. They also needed more room.

Named the North Fork Casino, it will be located near Fresno on 305 acres of land. Plans include the operation of 2,000 slot machines and 50 game tables. It is estimated to cost $200 million to build.
