Graton Rancheria seeks cooperative agreement for county park
Posted: Thursday, July 28, 2011
The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria
, also known as the Coast Miwok Tribe, is seeking a cooperative agreement with Sonoma County to develop a regional park.
The county already spent $31 million to buy the 3,426 acres for the Tolay Lake Regional Park
But public access is limited due to the lack of a master plan.
The tribe is donating $500,000 to help cover the costs of the plan. And Chairman Greg Sarris says the tribe wants to donate
$2 million to $5 million a year for 20 years to state and regional parks.
The board of supervisors in the county will vote August 9 on an agreement with the tribe.
