The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation is looking to expand its casino in northern California.

The project at the Cache Creek Casino Resort is still in the early stages. A notice of a tribal environmental impact report was published in March, outlining plans for adding more hotel rooms and ballroom to the facility.

"Throughout the entire week we are having to turn potential customers away,” casino spokesperson Mike Traum told The Woodland Daily Democrat, explaining the need for more hotel rooms. “The added capacity will allow us to service more customers that way."

The hotel could see as many as 459 new hotel rooms, the paper reported. The ballroom would seat about 1,300 people.

Construction could begin in early 2017 but the tribe must complete its environmental review process. The tribe is also seeking approval of its new Class III gaming compact.
