YouTube: KPBS: Jamul Indian Village Breaks Ground On Casino Amid Opposition, Legal Challenges

Opponents are trying to stop the Jamul Indian Village from building a $360 million casino on its reservation in southern California. KPBS reports:
Construction on the Hollywood Casino in the Jamul Indian Village, near state Route 94 has begun. This is no surprise. This casino has been in the planning for more than two decades.

But local residents and county officials are still fighting it. Michael Casinelli, a member of the Jamul/Dulzura Community Planning Group said the community opposes the casino for countless reasons.

He said they are concerned about the environmental impacts of the casino on everything from transportation and traffic to road access and the protection of native species and groundwater resources.

"The situation is, these multiple issues of environmental quality have not been evaluated or addressed," Casinelli said.

But it's more than just that. A local group called Jamulians Against the Casino are suing, claiming the six acres in question don't qualify as Indian gaming land.
