Dear Friends and Neighbors,
I am writing to provide a new update on the exciting changes we are planning for our Cache Creek Casino Resort. We are pleased to report the draft Tribal Environmental Impact Report (TEIR) for the project is now complete and available for review. (A link is posted on this site.) The TEIR presents the results of important studies about anticipated potential impacts of the project and provides an opportunity for the public to review and share comments.
The changes planned for the hotel will be an investment — not just in the resort — but in the broader community and region, as a tourist destination.
Since opening in 2004, the resort has enjoyed strong customer support; however, a lack of hotel rooms, both here and in the surrounding area, has often required guests to drive home rather than stay. To answer this unmet demand, we will begin work to expand our hotel as soon as early 2017.
As we’ve shared, the proposed expansion will add up to 459 rooms to our existing hotel, as well as a pool, a restaurant, additional meeting space and a multipurpose ballroom. No additional gaming space is planned.
With this extra capacity, we will finally be able to welcome more overnight guests, saving them trips on the road. We also look forward to offering more rooms and amenities for our neighbors and other local visitors, including those coming to our region as an agritourism destination.
Together, we share the beautiful Capay Valley as our home, and our Tribe is focused on protecting this land and open space. This project will not affect any undeveloped land. The updated hotel will fit within the existing footprint of the resort, using part of our south parking lot. The architecture will fit the natural backdrop of the Capay Valley, match the aesthetics of the existing hotel, and incorporate the high quality finish standards employed in our Yocha Dehe Golf Club and Séka Hills Olive Mill and Tasting Room.
We still have work to do. As your community partner and neighbor, we will continue to share updates on the project and its impacts. To learn more, we urge you to visit www.yochadehe.org and www.cachecreek.com.
Thank you very much for your time.
Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation
