Last week the Sonoma County Supervisors approved a new agreement with the Dry Creek Rancheria to build a new casino and hotel on the 75-acre site of the River Rock Casino. The supervisors voted 4-1 in favor of the measure.
The agreement between the county and the tribe includes these provisions:
The new River Rock resort casino will include a 60,000 square-foot casino with 1,500 slot machines, mulitple restaurants and a food court, a 300-room hotel, spa, salon, fitness center, event center and a wedding chapel.
The new River Rock Casino plan replaces a 2008 agreement with Sonoma County to build a larger project with a 88,000-square-foot casino, 3,000 slot machines, and a 600-room hotel.
Dry Creek Rancheria agreed not to build another casino near Petaluma before 2035. The tribe owns 277 acres south of Petaluma, which has been approved for a casino by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs. This provision is conditional and whether or not the Koi Nation's proposal to build Shiloh Resort & Casino near Windsor is approved by the federal government. If successful, Sonoma County would nullify a Petaluma casino.
When the new casino opens, the tribe will pay the county $750,000 annually for the first four years. Afterwards a two percent increase will be added annually until the payments reach a maximum of $1.5 million.
Plans for the new River Rock Casino Resort are in the development stage. Further information and the timeline are pending.
