Graton Resort and Casino $1 Billion Expansion
The expansion at the Graton Resort includes a gaming floor almost twice the current size, 2,000 more slot machines and 200+ hotel rooms. Greg Sarris, Tribal Chairman of the Federated Indians of the Graton Rancheria stated the following points at the groundbreaking ceremony.
The next phase at the Casino is a planned 3500 seat performance theater in 2025. It would be the largest performance venue in Sonoma County. Under the current agreement with Sonoma County, the tribe pays the county $9 Million annually. Going forward, the payments to the county will rise to $14.5 Million with adjustments based on the consumer price index.
The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you are doing, someone else does.
