California Coastal Commission Rejects Trinidad Rancheria’s Proposed Hotel Project

TRINIDAD, CA. (KIEM) – The California Coastal Commission votes six to three rejecting the Trinidad Rancheria’s proposed 100-room hotel project.

The decision comes after the commission found the project is inconsistent with the state coastal protections. The main concern is if the City of Trinidad can supply enough water for the 5-story hotel.

The City can produce up to 48,000 more gallons per day. But they have to do further testing on distribution before they can commit to the tribe.

The Coastal Commission urges the Rancheria to resubmit its application for the August meeting at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka.
