Redding Rancheria 

 Casino Expansion 

The Effects:

  • Disrupt Neighborhoods with light and noise pollution from features including an Outdoor Amphitheater

  • Threaten Endangered Species along the Sacramento River including the Bald Eagle

  • 13,500 Addition Daily Trips on I-5

  • Unfair Competition for local businesses who will have to compete with Tax-Free retailers

  • Increase Urban Sprawl into agricultural and residential zoned land

  • Decrease Property value around project area

Our Efforts so Far:

  • Over 5,000 Coalition Members - Over 5,000 Shasta County residents have joined our effort to oppose this project.

  • Over 1,000 Calls and Letters Sent - Our coalition members have been engaging our elected officials urging them to stand with our community and formally oppose the expansion.

  • No More Amphitheater - Thanks to our efforts the Redding Rancheria has officially removed the outdoor amphitheater from their proposal.

  • Redding City Council Unanimously Opposes Project - Mayor Julie Winter said she has never seen as many letters and calls as the Council did from us. Thanks to all those efforts they unanimously voted to formally oppose the expansion. 

Next Steps:

The time to act is now. The Redding City Council has unanimously formally opposed this project. We are one step closer to getting this project defeated. Now its time to focus our efforts on the Shasta County Board of Supervisors!

The Proposal:

In 2016, Redding Rancheria began the process of approving the development a 232-acre plot of land to replace and expand the current Win River Casino.

The proposed development includes:

 

  • 69,000+ Sq. Ft. Casino

  • 250-room Hotel

  • Convention Center & Event Space

  • 130,000 sq. ft. Retail Center

  • Parking Structure with 2,600+ spaces

 

The site is located 1.6 miles northeast of the existing casino, nearly 2 miles southeast of downtown Redding, just off the Bonnyview exit on Interstate 5. The plot sits right on the bank of the Sacramento River and is bordered by over 200 residential homes.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has published an over 5,000-page Draft Environmental Impact Statement that identifies numerous potential issues. The BIA has the sole discretion to approve or deny this proposal with little local oversight. 

Shasta County residents deserve the opportunity to sufficiently express their concerns over the project and to weigh in on official decisions. Speak Up and tell our elected officials to get involved.
