The Elem Pomo Tribe of California might file a lawsuit if a housing project on Rattlesnake Island, the ancestral Pomo village, wins approval. The tribe opposes development at the 12,000-year-old site. The entire 58-acre island is owned by John Nady, who wants to build two cabins and a standalone bathroom there. The Lake County Planning Commission will consider a "declaration" to allow the work at a meeting on Thursday. The tribe says the county needs to order a environmental impact report. Get the Story:
