Wilton Rancheria looks like the next urban casino

The Wilton Rancheria project is vital to the future of Elk Grove and the surrounding region. It will create thousands of well-paying jobs – something Elk Grove needs and must have.

It will mean opportunities for small businesses, from printers and recyclers to food and beverage providers. Under long-term deals with Elk Grove and Sacramento County, Wilton Rancheria will invest more than $180 million in the first 20 years of the project to improve public safety, traffic, schools and community programs.

And the resort and casino will create in Elk Grove the second-largest convention center in Sacramento County, as well as a luxury hotel, fine-dining options and concert venues. This is why dozens of leading organizations – business, labor, police, environmental, religious, governmental and other groups – strongly support the project.
