UPPER LAKE, CA (Lake County) - The US Department of the Interior has approved a petition from the Habematolel Pomo Tribe of Upper Lake to place
11.24 acres of tribal property into federal trust for the purpose of building a $35 million casino next to the Upper Lake County Park on Highway 20.

The Secretary of the Interior Department issued a "finding of no significant impact" (FONSI) after an environmental assessment, comments from the public, and the tribe's responses to those comments. The tribe's attorney, Robert Rosette, said "It's a significant victory in the grand scope of their project. Emotionally, as well, it means an awful lot to this tribe to reestablish their land base."

The final step before breaking ground on the new casino is for the tribe to negotiate a gaming compact with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and having it approved by the state legislature and the federal government. If approved this fall, construction could begin in the first half of 2009 and finish
12-18 months after that.
