With its headquarters at a distance of 80 miles north in Lake County, the Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians intends to start the gaming activities at the place near the waterfront. The facility would have installed 50 gambling tables and 2,000 slot machines. The tribe had given its consent for payment of approx $330 million to the city of Richmond in 20 years against the municipal services and its support for the federal consent. The State Courts did not agree with the challenges by various residents of Parchester Village and several East Bay environmental groups.
However, the Interior Department stated that permission as per the regulations could be granted only if the tribe could prove a historic link with the site. The Department used its veto power on Friday on the issue of building a casino on the place, 30 acres north of Richmond. It said that the tribe fell short of the historic connection with the site. The Scotts Valley Band claimed its historic ties with the site. However, the department’s office of Indian Affairs did not agree with the same. It said that the tribe or its predecessors did not have any solid proof in terms of their link with the site and its continuous use.
The same thing happened during last September, when the Department opposed the Convention center on Richmond’s Point Molate shoreline and Guidiville Band of Pomo Indians’ proposed casino too. The proposals did not find its favors and the City Council had withdrawn its support.
