Casino plans move forward in Elk Grove


— CHANGES THE ODDS FOR A
GAMBLING CENTER THAT COULD ALTER
THE FACE OF ELK GROVE FOREVER.
>>WE NOW HAVE A HOME.
[LAUGHTER]
AFTER NEARLY SIX DECADES OF
BEING LANDLESS, T WILTON
RANCHERI TRIBE HAS PERMISSION
TO BUILD A LUXURY RESORT AND
CASINO AT THE GO SMALL ON ELK
GROVE.
>>A 302 ROOM
LUXUR HOTEL, A
CONVENTION CENTER FOR CONCERTS
AND BANQUETS, A 200
— AND FINE
DINING RESTAURANT CHOICES.
MIKE IT IS EXPECTED TO GENERATE
2000 JOBS, A PROMISI PROSPECT
FOR TRIBAL MEMBERS SAMMY
ESPINOZA, WHO IS LOOKING TO DO
WORK.
JUST TO DO SOMETHING.
MIKE THANKS TO THE FEDERAL
TRUST, THE CITY OF ELK GROVE HAS
NO JURISDICTION OVER THE CASINO
SITE.
IT IS ON SOVEREIGN LAND,
PURCHASED FOR $36 MILLION BY
BOYD GAMING.
THE PROPERTY IS LOCATED A FEW
STEPS NORTH OF THE ABANDONED
OUTLET COLLECTION MALL ON BY THE
HOWARD HUGHES CORPORATION WHICH
TODAY CALLED THE PROJECT
IMPORTANT TO THEIR LEASING
EFFORTS, BUT MANY ELK GROVE
RESIDENTS STRONGLY OPPOSE HAVING
A GAMBLING CENTER IN THEIR TOWN.
>>I DO NOT THINK IT IS GOOD FOR
COMMUNITY.
I THINK THEY JUST SOLD THE SOUL
OF ELK GROVE, IF YOU WANT MIKE:
TO KNOW THE TRUTH.
ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONCERNS IS
TRAFFIC CONGESTION.
MY DAUGHTER WORKS ARE A
CASINO AND I WILL TELL YOU, IT
CREATES A LOT OF PROBLEMS.
MIKE IT WILL TAKE SEVERAL YEARS
FOR THIS CASINO PROJECT BE
DEVELOPED AND BUILT OUT, BUT IT
NEEDS FINAL APPROVAL FROM T
LEGISLATURE AND GOVERNOR BROWN.
AMONG THE SUPPORTERS, ELK GROVE
ASSEMBLYMAN JIM COOPER.
I TRUST THEY WILL
WORK ON THE
COMPACT.
ONCE THE COMPACT IS RATIFIED, I
WILL LOOK AT THE BILL.
MIKE: THE COMPACT REQUIRES A YES
