Regional-LocationThe Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) has initiated the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to analyze the potential environmental consequences of the Wilton Rancheria’s (Tribe) application for a proposed 282-acre fee-to-trust transfer and casino project to be located in Sacramento County, to the north of the City of Galt. The proposed project site is adjacent to the western boundary of Highway 99, to the north of Twin Cities Road. The proposed action would transfer approximately 282 acres of land from fee to trust status, upon which the Tribe would develop a gaming facility. For the purpose of this EIS, the BIA is serving as Lead Agency for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
