Elk Valley Rancheria moves resort plans ahead

For seven years the Elk Valley Rancheria has experienced ups and downs planning a resort on Martin Ranch, but those plans now appear to be coming to fruition.

Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Carl Artman has signed a decision approving the 203.5-acre land transfer to a trust on Jan. 4.

"The purpose of the change in status was to build new a new casino and resort on that property," said Bradley Downes, general counsel for the tribe.

A final environmental impact statement for the land transfer was released to the public in October 2006 and then sent to the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs for review.

"This concludes the final environmental process," Downes said.

Plans for the nine and a half acre resort include a 40,000-square-foot casino with 349-425 slot machines; a three-story, 156-room hotel; restaurants including a buffet, steakhouse and cafe; and a conference center, on Humboldt Road and U.S. Hwy 101.
