California Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a compact with the Pinoleville Pomo Nation that will allow the tribe, located in Mendocino County, to develop a $50 million gambling property, featuring a 90,000-square-foot casino with up to 900 slot machines and a 72,100-square-foot hotel.
Under the compact, the tribe will use up to 15 percent the net profits for the community and problem gambling programs. It also includes provisions to protect employees and patrons and measures that the tribe must take to protect the environment during the construction and operation of gaming facilities. The compact supersedes one signed in 2009.
