Pinoleville Pomo Nation outlines plans for casino development

The Pinoleville Pomo Nation of California appears to be making progress on its casino plan.

The tribe signed a Class III gaming compact with Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in August 2011. As part of the agreement, the tribe has to address off-reservation impacts of its casino.

The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors will be considering a memorandum of understanding on Thursday for the proposed casino, The Ukiah Daily Journal reports. Phase one consists of a 26,000 square-foot casino with 349 slot machines, 10 table games, a restaurant, a bar and lounge, a deli, a retail shop and other amenities, the paper said.

In a second phase, the tribe anticipates expanding the casino to 80,000 square-feet to house up to 749 slot machines. Phase three would include a hotel, event center and meeting rooms.
