SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice is published to comply with the requirement of 25 CFR part 151.12(b) that notice be given to the public of the Secretary's decision to acquire land in trust at least 30 days prior to signatory acceptance of the land into trust. The purpose of the 30-day waiting period in 25 CFR part 151.12(b) is to afford interested parties the opportunity to seek judicial review of final administrative decisions to take land in trust for Indian tribes and individual Indians before transfer of title to the property occurs.

The 11.24 acres are located in Upper Lake, Lake County, California. The parcel will be used for the development and operation of a class II and class III gaming facility.
