The Wilton Rancheria announced Thursday that it has chosen the site of a half-built mall in Elk Grove as the preferred location for its planned resort and casino.
The federal Bureau of Indian Affairs will be asked to designate the 35.9-acre parcel along Highway 99 as the preferred alternative in the environmental impact statement, prepared in response to the tribe’s application to have the land taken into trust for the project.
ECOS believes that the unfinished mall in Elk Grove is the best site proposed for the new Casino, as stated in our letter sent to the Bureau of Indian Affairs on February 29, 2016. Click here to read that letter.
