Plans for Casino Near Oakland Airport are "Dead"

According to a letter received Friday, June 10, 2005, from the owners of the proposed Oakland casino site to Oakland City Council President Ignacio de la Fuente, plans for the casino are "dead." The casino proposed by the Lower Lake Rancheria Koi Nation had been opposed by the cities of Oakland, San Leandro, Alameda, and Berkeley and Alameda County.

The tribe had an option to purchase the site, which expired at the end of May, according to Legacy Partners, owners of the site.

See the Oakland Tribune article for the full story.
