Lytton Tribe Development

Information on Lytton Rancheria of California Tribe Development

Update

On December 20, 2019, U.S. Senate Bill S.1790 was signed into law by President Donald J. Trump. S.1790 included provisions for taking approximately 511 acres of tribal land into trust as part of the reservation of the Lytton Rancheria of California. S.1790 also stipulates that no gaming shall be conducted on any lands taken into trust on behalf of the Tribe in Sonoma County in perpetuity.

Following this action, the Town and the Tribe began discussions about the possibility of allowing connection to the Town’s wastewater system to serve residential and tribal community uses that will be developed on a portion of the lands taken into trust. A draft agreement will be presented to the Town Council on May 20, 2020 for review and approval. Below are links to a "FAQ" sheet, the May 20th Town Council Staff Report, and figures showing tribal lands and areas where residential and tribal community uses will be developed.
