Redding Rancheria has renewed its 2016 application with the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs to relocate and expand the Win-River Casino.
New opposition to the relocation emerged last week from Senator Dianne Feinstein. In a letter to Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Bryan Newland dated Dec. 21, 2021, Sen. Feinstein wrote a "restored lands" exception is not applicable in this case, and she recommends expanding the public input process to included local residents, City of Redding, Shasta County and the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, which owns the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning, California
Redding Rancheria Tribal Council Chairman Jack Potter responded:
"The tribe isn't shocked that we received opposition from Dianne Feinstein; Dianne Feinstein opposes all casino relocation projects. She has personal issues against casinos that affected her personally in her life so we know that she opposes them."
Last year the tribe asked the department to place the project on temporary hold after the City of Redding and Shasta County expressed opposition over economic issues and environment concerns.
After a lengthy review and consideration the project resumed last September. An environmental impact study has since been completed by the U.S. Depart of interior. That report is now pending publication and will be followed by public comments.
Chairman Potter said the tribe will continue to "move ahead slowly" with the project.

The proposed relocation of Win-River Casino has been restarted by the federal government after stopping a year ago due to opposition from Shasta County and the City of Redding. A decision was recently made by the new Secretary of Interior, Deb Haaland, to resume the federal process for moving the Win-River Resort & Casino to tribal property next to Interstate 5 and Churn Creek Road.
The Redding Rancheria want to replace their existing Win-River Resort & Casino with a larger casino and hotel along the I-5. The casino would have a 70,000-square-foot gaming floor with 1,200 slot machines and 36 table games. A 9-story hotel would offer 250 guest rooms, a spa and pool. The new Win-River complex would also feature restaurants, an event center, an outdoor amphitheater and retail shops.
The Interior Department has resumed its environmental impact study for the casino move. Approval for the project is not needed from Shasta County and Redding. After the study is completed an environment impact report will be published for public comments. Afterwards the Interior Department will decide whether to approve the relocation. If approved, the Interior Department will tranfer 232 acres of land owned by the Redding Rancheria and located at I-5 into federal trust. That process grants tribal sovereignty to the land and allows construction of an Indian gaming casino.

Four years after filing a land-to-trust application with the Bureau of Indian Affairs for federal approval to relocate and expand the size of the Win-River Casino at a new site south of Redding, the Redding Rancheria received a letter from the U.S. Department of the Interior stating the tribe's Casino Relocation Project requires state rather than federal approval.
When the tribe's application was filed in 2016, the federal government had the ultimate authority to approve the project. Now the process for this project has been changed according to the Interior Department's letter in light of a new decision by the California Supreme Court.
After receiving a significant number of concerns and opposition from the public and other parties including U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein and the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians, which own the Rolling Hills Casino, the Interior Department wants the final decision made by the state.
The tribe's attorney, Mike Hollowell, downplayed the significance of the letter stating it is "just a procedural step" in the process. "While this is a disappointing development, it does not foreclose on the tribe's Casino Relocation Project. It's not an end of the project."

Redding Rancheria is suing the City of Redding for a questionable real estate transaction that effectively blocks public access to the Sacramento River-front property where the tribe plans to relocate the Win-River casino.
The tribe claims the city improperly sold property containing the only entryway into the tribe's relocation site. In a closed-door meeting earlier this year the city council designated this access property as exempt surplus land and authorized its sell to a private company, Shasta Land Holdings LLC, which is also named in the lawsuit.
In a statement, the Redding Rancheria explained:
"We believe the City of Redding has tried to kill the tribe's Casino Relocation project. By selling this public property to a private entity with deep pockets, the City of Redding is trying to prevent commercial access to the Tribe's I-5 property, which could prove detrimental to the viability of the Casino Relocation Project."
The lawsuit was filed in the Shasta County Superior Court on July 31.
May 12, 2020
In a press release last week the Redding Rancheria authorized Win-River Resort & Casino to reopen its gaming operation in a limited capacity effective May 15.
The announcement was published on the Facebook page of Win-River Casino.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MAY 8, 2020
To make this important decision, we tracked local health data, consulted with our medical directors, and, ultimately, approved a robust and detailed reopening plan. The reopening plan prioritizes the well-being of our employees and guests and meets or exceeds federal, state, and county guidelines for operating businesses.
As part of the reopening plan, we will require temperature screenings of our employees and guests before they enter the casino. Employees and guests will also be required to wear appropriate facemasks inside the casino. Win-River Resort and Casino will provide facemasks as necessary.
Guests will also experience a variety of changes inside the casino, including a number of hand sanitizing stations, measures to maintain social distancing and ensure adequate spacing, limited food service, no alcohol sales, and plexiglass barriers where appropriate. We will continue to monitor the situation actively with a focus on public health and safety. As we all adjust to the new normal, please know that Redding Rancheria is here to support the entire community, not just our members, employees, patients, and guests.

In a statement released this week by the Redding Rancheria, the Win-River Casino plan to relocate has been placed on hold due to opposition by the Redding City Council and the Shasta County Board of Supervisors.
The statement from Redding Rancheria officials reads:
"Redding Rancheria has requested that the Bureau of Indian Affairs pause the environmental review process for the I-5 casino relocation project. We believe that the City and County's opposition to the project has caused concern among federal decision-makers within the Trump administration and may prove insurmountable. Redding Rancheria regrets that this opposition will postpone many job opportunities and other economic benefits that the project would have otherwise provided our local community. We will continue to try to work with our local leaders as we monitor the long-term plan for the I-5 casino relocation project."
The proposed project would build a new casino with a 69,541-square-feet gaming floor, 1,200 slot machines and 36 game tables. The plan includes a 9-story hotel with 250 rooms, a conference center, restaurants, event center with1,800 seats and an outdoor amphitheater with 1,500 seats.
October 3, 2019
The Shasta County Board of Supervisors opposes the Redding Rancheria's plans to move the Win-River Resort & Casino to a new location on Interstate 5 south of Redding. On Tuesday the Board voted 5-0 against the plan.
Proposed site for the relocation and expansion of Win-River Resort & Casino at Strawberry Fields
The Shasta County Board of Supervisors is sending an official letter of opposition to the tribe explaining "the project will have a detrimental impact on the Shasta County community that cannot be adequately mitigated."
The Redding City Council took similar action last August when it voted unanimously against the casino move. The Council said it is willing to work with the tribe in search of an alternative location.
The proposed site is 232 acres of non-reservation land referred to as Strawberry Fields. In late 2016 the Redding Rancheria submitted an application to the U.S. Interior Department to take this land into federal trust as reservation land. That decision is pending and may come as early as the end of this year.
May 20, 2019
The The Redding Rancheria is seeking federal, state and local approval to move the Win-River Resort and Casino from its present location at 2100 Redding Rancheria Rd in Redding to a new location along Interstate 5.
The new casino would be built on property owned by the tribe and referred to as the "Strawberry Fields Site". It is 232 acres located south of Redding, adjacent to I-5 (westside) and south of the Bonnyview Road exit. It lies between I-5 and the Sacramento River. Bechelli Lane is the northern boundry and private properties line the south.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is currently evaluating the environmental impact of build the Win-River Resort & Casino on the Strawberry Fields site. There is no completion date published for the final EIS report although it is hoped to be finished next year.
