Karuk Tribe gets casino green light

by LACEY JARRELL, Herald and News 8/21/14

     The Karuk Tribe got a green light from the California Legislature to take the next steps in building a casino near Yreka.

   The approved tribalstate gaming compact, Senate Bill 1224, means the tribe may build and operate a Class III gaming facility in Yreka once it is signed by Gov. Jerry Brown and approved by the U.S. Department of the Interior, according to a news release.

   “We are looking forward to a successful business venture that will provide multiple benefits for the entire community through job creation, increased local business revenue and an expansion of vital health and human services,” Karuk Tribe Chairman Buster Attebery said.  

   According to a news release, the casino will be developed in two phases. Phase 1 consists of a 36,000-square-foot facility with approximately 500 gaming machines, eight game tables, a 100-seat restaurant and parking. Phase 2 will add an 80-room hotel, additional parking, 20,000 additional square feet of gaming space, 300 gaming machines, and eight game tables.
