Wilton Casino Resort EIS
December 9, 2016

The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs, has released the Final EIS for the Wilton Rancheria Fee-to-Trust and Casino Resort Project, located in Elk Grove, Sacramento County, California in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The EIS also satisfies the requirements for the Tribal Project Environmental Document that the Wilton Rancheria (Tribe) agreed to prepare, and also the Tribal Environmental Impact Report that is expected to be required by the Tribe’s future gaming compact with the State of California. The Proposed Action consists of the transfer of the 36-acre Elk Grove Mall property from fee to trust status for the purposes of the development of a casino, hotel, and associated facilities. The site has been partially developed with a large retail facility; however, the site currently sits unoccupied. The proposed project consists of the construction of a 600,000+ square-foot casino-resort facility, 12-story 302 room hotel, and a 47,000+ square-foot convention center. AES assisted the BIA with the preparation of the EIS.
