A new alternative location for the Wilton Rancheria tribe's casino has been announced. As of now the preferred location is on 282 acres in Galt. However the tribe is requesting that 39.5 acres be taken into trust in Elk Grove.
The Howard Hughes Corporation owns the land that the tribe wants to use. The Outlet Collection at Elk Grove is a project currently being built next to the proposed casino location.
The land has not been officially bought by the tribe. However, a land purchase agreement has been signed.
The proposed casino will operate 2,000 gaming machines. There will be an event venue of 30,000 square feet. There will also be 302 guest rooms in the 12 story tall hotel. The cost of the project will be over $400 million. It will take 12 to 18 months to complete. After the construction is finished there will be 2,000 job created.
Elk Grove will hold a town hall meeting to discuss the proposed casino project.
