Habematolel Pomo casino wins BIA approval

The Bureau of Indian Affairs has issued a finding of no significant impact for the casino sought by the Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake in California.

The tribe plans a $35 million casino on 11.25 acres in Upper Lake. The facility will include a 20,000 square-foot casino with 349 slot machines and some table games.

The tribe has not negotiated a Class III gaming compact with the state. An agreement could be reached this year, an attorney for the tribe said.
