Even though the City of Redding won’t be deciding the fate of a proposed new casino, the city council will host a workshop on the proposal. Redding Rancheria wants to build a new facility in an area in South Redding near the Bechlli/South Bonnyview Interchange. It would include a casino, hotel, retail space and an event center. Opponents have expressed concerns about traffic, increased costs to local government and environmental concerns. It’s expected that Redding Rancheria will make their case, espousing the economic benefits and jobs created by the project. There will also be a public discussion period. The workshop will be in the council chambers Monday, starting at 5:30PM.
