The Tribe is celebrating the achievement as a mutual win.

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors recently approved a deal with the Redding Rancheria Tribe regarding a casino relocation project. The Board voted four to one in favor of the agreement.

Redding Rancheria CEO Tracy Edwards said the deal reflects the Tribe’s hard work and its commitment to helping the community to flourish.

She commented, "We are confident that this agreement will benefit the entire community. Our Tribe has proven again and again that we have paid our fair share and in many cases, have gone above and beyond.

“Although this process has taken longer than anticipated and we have been disappointed by the lack of support by a few community members and local groups, we remain resolute in our commitment to the betterment of the community and are excited to move forward."

The contract specifically addresses how the county and Redding Rancheria will work in tandem for services needed on the casino relocation. Redding Rancheria described the approval as a mutual win.

The group said in a statement, “The Tribe is and has always been proud to give to the community and to work with local officials to understanding the needs of the community. This agreement solidifies those values.”

Redding Rancheria went on to acknowledge several county supervisors for their “forward thinking,” including Kevin Crye, Patrick Jones, Tim Garman and Chris Kelstrom. The Tribe thanked these leaders for “recognizing that this is a win for the county.”

The company concluded by saying, “Redding Rancheria is also appreciative that these Supervisors understand the positive impact that this agreement will have on the community as a whole.”
