1,100-acres Taken Into Trust For United Auburn Indian Community
August 6, 2009

The Bureau of Indian Affairs accepted 1,100 acres of land into trust for the United Auburn Indian Community, in Placer County, CA, near the community of Sheridan. The Tribe plans to construct tribal housing and community facilities on the property, including 110 houses, an administrative center, community center, and school. The site, which is currently used for cattle grazing, contains sensitive environmental resources which will be avoided and/or enhanced through the implementation of a resources management plan. AES completed the NEPA Environmental Assessment and the Management Plan for the project, leading to approvals from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the subsequent trust acquisition of the property by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
