The Tachi-Yokut Tribe, originally a basket weaving society, built a gaming industry over the past 20 years based on Bingo. Recently however, table games and slot machines have become a primary source of revenue, hence a large Casino was built in 1999 to supplement their existing Bingo Hall. Work in 2003 included an expansion to the Casino that included a 255 room hotel with infrastructure to include another 250 rooms in the future.
The tribe’s vision is to create the “Santa Rosa Resort,” a new travel destination in the California Central Valley. By weaving new elements into the existing gaming center, a new resort complex is achieved.
The new master plan is based on three primary functions as the logical evolution of the thriving gaming industry: an expanded gaming center, a hotel and pool, and an event/conference center. Each of the component parts have been designed around the Tachi-Yokut fundamental principals of earth, water, and sky, creating a new and vibrant resort, while also maintaining the rich cultural heritage of the Tachi-Yokut Tribe.
