Tribal Organization: Wilton Rancheria
ELK GROVE CASINO
Highway 99 and Grant Line Road
Elk Grove, Sacramento County, CA
Wilton Rancheria will build a $400 million casino off Highway 99 and Grant Line Road in Sacramento County. The site is 35.9 acres in The Outlet Collection at Elk Grove.
In September 2016 the Elk Grove City Council approved a local agreement with the tribe. Wilton Rancheria will pay the city $132 million over 20 years to cover the financial impact of the casino on its community.
The proposed site is "off-reservation" land. The tribe opted to purchase it for a casino and applied to the U.S. Interior Department for special approval. A favorable decision was issued in January 2017 and the land was taken into federal trust.
This prompted opposition groups to appeal the legality of that decision . In July 2017 the Interior Department denied their appeal.
A week later Gov. Jerry Brown announced he had negotiated and signed a gaming compact with the tribe allowing 2,500 slot machines. The compact was then ratified by the legislature. Final signoffs and approvals were announced in October 2017.
Construction is expected to take 12-18 months to complete.
