SACRAMENTO - Last week construction workers resumed work on the expansion of the Thunder Valley Casino. Work stopped 5 months ago as the owners, the United Auburn Indian Community, reassessed their plans.
The result was to scale down the project for a hotel, a parking structure, and a performing arts center. The hotel was originally planned to be 23 stories tall. Now it will be 15 stories. The parking structure will be reduced from 9 stories to 7, and the performing arts center will now be a 10,000-square-foot multipurpose room.
A spokesman for the United Auburn Indian Community, Doug Elmets, said Tuesday, "It meets the market demand, and it saves a lot of money." He would not disclose the final cost of the expansion.
Construction will be completed in June 2010.
