Respones from the Jamul/Dulzura Planning Group to the tribe's last EIR's. They can be found here:

 

 

The current "EE" addresses some of the issues but does not show the issues need any mitigation.
Links to the Draft "EE" can be found here: www.jacjamul.com right column under JIV proposal. (large files, may take time to load)

 

Caltrans has yet to produce their Traffic Study. The tribe hired Kimley-Horn and Associates for the traffic portion of the EE. The traffic study Appendix 10 can be found on the website www.jacjamul.com. The study is 801 pages long but still does not address the danger of Highway 94.

QUESTIONS Still Remain!!!!!

 

Where will the tribe get the money to build?

Where did they get the money to hire Summit Project Management and MJE Marketing?

Where did the tribe get the money to pay for the "Environmental Evaluation"?

Where will the tribe get the money to pay Lakes Entertainment back?

When will Caltrans present their "Environmental Review" of ingress and egress?

Has the Catholic Diocese been notified their landlocked cemetary will now have casino in front of it?

Rancho Jamul Estates. The tribe is tapped in before their neighborhood.  Will Otay Water put in more pumps to keep up the pressure? Who is going to pay for it?

SDG&E. Now that the substation is not going to be built on the Simpsons property, where will the tribe get enough power? Will Jamul experience brown and black outs because of the drain?

 

The past environmental reviews failed. What makes the tribe, let alone another developer and financier,

think this one will pass?

Amicus Brief

 

The Supreme Court of the United States granted a oral arguements hearing on the case Salazar v. Patchak. Patchak, a homeowner in the State of Michigan filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, stating that a tribe that was not a federally recognized tribe in 1934, does not have the right to take land into trust and "A PRIVATE CITIZEN HAS A RIGHT TO OBTAIN JUDICIAL REVIEW OF FEE-TO-TRUST CONVERSIONS IN HIS OR HER NEIGHBORHOOD".

 

JAC was contacted by Cheryl Schmidt of Stand Up for California in January 2012 to join in an Amicus Brief to be read into the oral arguements. 28 community groups in California were added to the brief. It's time the Supreme Court enforce their decision on Carcieri v. Salazar.
