UPPER LAKE, CA - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a gaming compact with the Habematolel Pomo tribe of Upper Lake last week clearing a major hurdle in the tribe's efforts to build an Indian casino near Clear Lake. The location is just east of Upper Lake on Highway 20 and only 2 miles from the Robinson Rancheria Resort and Casino. Lake County is also home to Twin Pine casino and Konocti Vista Casino Resort and Marina.
The new casino will cost $39 million to build and will host 349 slot machines and about 6 gaming tables. Future plans would expand it to 75,000 square feet and add a hotel, wine shop, and meeting rooms.
The gaming compact signed by the governor runs through December 21, 2030 and allows a maximum of 750 slot machines. Under its terms, the tribe will pay the state 15 percent of its annual net revenues. The next steps are for the state Legislature and the Bureau of Indian Affairs to agree to the compact.
If all proceeds as expected, construction will begin next spring
