Graton Casino reveals expanding projects

The Sonoma County government is studying the potential environmental impacts.

Operators of Graton Resort & Casino would expand the facility with a 200-room hotel wing, if the government approved it.

US.- The Californian Graton Resort & Casino could offer further touristic attractions as its operators sent the government an expanding petition. The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, owners of the luxurious facility, proposed a new hotel wing with 200 rooms. The government is already evaluating the demand.

According to World Casino Directory, the Sonoma County administration has received the Draft Tribal Environmental Impact Report to study the petition. Operators detailed the project seeking to expand their business in California. Furthermore, a Town Hall meeting was held yesterday afternoon at Stony Point Christian Fellowship, Santa Rosa, to discuss the project among residents.

The highlighted attraction of Graton Rancheria’s petition is the job opportunities they would bring to the town. During the construction of the new wing, over 1,000 employees would be hired and 150 more residents would be able to apply for permanent jobs after the opening. As local news reported, the project includes “meeting rooms, and the expansion of the banquet area, mezzanine transfer space, back of house space, and circulation space.”

Graton Resort & Casino expects to boost the tourism industry near San Francisco. The exclusive venue is located outside of the city of Rohnert Park along US Route 101 and has been operating since 2013.
