Karuk Tribe hopes to break ground on casino by summer 2014

The Karuk Tribe of California hopes to break ground on its casino by summer of 2014, The Siskiyou Daily News reported.

Construction will take about a year, Jaclyn Goodwin, the self-governance coordinator for the tribe, told the paper. The first phase calls for a 36,497 square-foot facility with enough space for 1,500 slot machines.

The tribe just signed a Class III gaming compact. It must be ratified by the California Legislature before it can be sent to the Bureau of Indian Affairs for review, a process that will likely take a few months.

A copy of the compact can be found at gov.ca.gov/news.php?id=18321.
