Rolling Hills in Corning is renovating virtually everything as it updates its property
Last Saturday, Rolling Hills Casino announced a new project to grow that unmasks a brand new, refreshing look to the already popular casino. This news is certainly opening up some new horizons for the town. The expansion project will include some additional space for the casino plan, two more restaurants and, a fresh and new interior design.
“So, everything from carpets to wall colors, the council has been hands-on in that aspect. We really want to make this project something special for our people and the community as well,” said Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians Tribal Chairman Andrew Alejandre. The Paskenta Band, the owners of the casino, performed a groundbreaking ceremony also to celebrate their return to be a sovereign nation for the last 25 years. It was terminated back in the ’50s and restored back in 1994.
Among the restaurants that will soon be part of the Casino, there are Fat Burger and Rock & Brews. And on top of those, a new brewery and distillery was announced as part of the remodeling, with the intention to sell their own homemade beer. With this project comes the expectation to bring millions of dollars to the region and more development to the community.
They have been trying for the last 25 years to bring back the governments and committees for their tribe. Nomlaki Foundation was also created by them with the intention to give back to the community, through the donation of millions of dollars, especially to the community area.
