The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs is holding a public meeting Wednesday to take comment on a proposal to build a 140,000-square-foot casino and 250-room hotel in the Churn Creek Bottom just south of Redding.
A story in Tuesday’s Record Searchlight listed the wrong day of the meeting.
The meeting is 6 p.m. at McLaughlin Auditorium at Sequoia Middle School, 1805 Sequoia St. in Redding.
The purpose of the meeting is to take public comment on the scope of an environmental impact statement that looks at the effects of building the complex, according to the bureau.
The Redding Rancheria wants to build the casino and hotel in a 232-acre field south of S. Bonnyview Road, west of Interstate 5 and east of the Sacramento River. The proposal also includes building an event/convention center, retail center and parking areas, according to the bureau.
