Group Puts Off Listing Casino Concerns - Wednesday 19th of April 2006

CALIFORNIA – As reported by the Contra Costa Times: "A North Richmond neighborhood advisory group failed Tuesday to come up with a list of concerns about a planned Las Vegas-styled casino in its community.

"Though the North Richmond Advisory Council has until April 28 to submit written concerns, the group does not yet have such a list drafted, nor has it set a meeting date to vote on one, chairman Lee Jones said Wednesday.

"A Contra Costa County assistant administrator and a representative from county Supervisor John Gioia's office at the neighborhood group's meeting Tuesday warned that it was important to include the community's concerns in the project's environmental impact statement.

"But during the meeting, Jones said he wanted instead to hear from tribal Chairman Donald Arnold.

"…If the council misses the April 28 deadline, it could jeopardize North Richmond's ability to sue the Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians should the tribe fail to deliver on a number of promises it has made to community members, Supervisor John Gioia said Wednesday. These include providing jobs to North Richmond residents, improving schools and funding health care in the impoverished and crime-ridden area…"
