On Tuesday the Wilton Rancheria Miwok tribe was given permission to develop a casino that will be located close to Sacramento. The bill, AB1606, was signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Elk Grove is in Sacramento County on Highway 99 where the tribe wants to build the casino. It is tribal owned land of 36 acres. The bill establishes the gaming compact between the State of California and the tribe.
The casino will have a 110,260 square floor casino floor. There will also be six restaurants and bars. A convention center, spa, and pool. The hotel will have 302 guest rooms and be 12 stories tall.
1,600 new construction jobs will be created by the project. When completed there will be 1,750 permanent jobs.
As condition to the approval of the bill, the tribe has agreed to invest over $180 million for public safety, school programs, and improve traffic in 20 years.
