A public scoping meeting will be held Thursday on the Wilton Rancheria Casino project planned outside Galt.

The tribe has submitted an application requesting the placement of approximately 282 acres in trust by the United States upon which the tribe would construct a gaming facility north of Twin Cities Road between Highway 99 and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.

The scoping process will identify and evaluate environmental concerns related to: land and water resources; air quality; noise; biological, cultural, historical and archaeological resources; resource use patterns; traffic and transportation; public health and safety; hazardous materials and wastes; public services and utilities; socio-economics; environmental justice; visual resources/aesthetics; and cumulative, indirect and growth-inducing effects, according to the official meeting notice.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Chabolla Community Center, 610 Chabolla Ave., in Galt.

Written comments regarding the proposed gaming facility must be received by Jan. 6. They can be mailed or hand-delivered to Amy Dutschke, Regional Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Pacific Region, 2800 Cottage Way, Sacramento, 95825. Include your name, return address and “NOI Comments, Wilton Rancheria Project” on the first page of your written comments.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
