SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Los Coyotes Band of Cahuilla and ˜ Cupeno Indians (Tribe) has requested that the BIA take into trust 23 acres of land currently held in fee by the Tribe, on which the Tribe proposes to construct a gaming facility, hotel, parking areas and other facilities. The approximately 23.1-acre project site is located within the incorporated boundaries of the City of Barstow, San Bernardino County, California, just east of Interstate 15. The parcels are located within Section 27, Township 9N, Range 2W, San Bernardino Base Meridian (SBM), as depicted on the Barstow, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic quadrangle. The project site consists of the following assessor’s parcel numbers (APNs): 428–171–66, 428–171–67, and 428–171–68. The proposed project includes the development of a casino with approximately 57,070 square feet of gaming floor. Associated facilities would include food and beverage services, retail space, banquet/meeting space, and administration space. Food and beverage facilities would include two full service restaurants, a drive-in restaurant, a buffet, a coffee shop, three service bars, and a lounge. The hotel tower would have approximately 100 rooms and a full-service restaurant. Both the gaming facility and the hotel would be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A total of 1,405 parking spaces would be provided. The following alternatives are considered throughout the DEIS: (A) Barstow casino and hotel complex project, (B) Barstow Reduced Casino Hotel Complex (Proposed Project described above), (C) a reducedintensity casino at a 19-acre site within the Los Coyotes Reservation, (D) a nongaming alternative, specifically the development of a campground facility within the Los Coyotes, and (E) a noaction alternative. Environmental issues addressed in the DEIS include land resources, water resources, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, socioeconomic conditions, environmental justice, transportation, land use, agriculture, public services, noise, hazardous materials, visual resources, cumulative effects, indirect effects, growth inducing effects and mitigation measures. The BIA serves as the Lead Agency for compliance with NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), with the NIGC, the USEPA, City of Barstow, and the Tribe serving as Cooperating Agencies.
