Rep. Huffman, stop your bill that would make the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians' Windsor land a sovereign nation. We want the town of Windsor to pass a resolution opposing the land being moved into trust and want the BIA to not transfer the land into trust.

Congressman Jared Huffman's legislation would move the 500 acres purchased by the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians at the western edge of Windsor, CA into federal trust, exempting the land from local zoning and planning regulations. The land, which has no historical connection to the Lytton Band of Pomo Indians, would become a sovereign nation. The plan will allow 147 homes (with 214 homes coming later), a roundhouse, a community center and retreat to be built as well as a winery and 200-room resort to be developed nearby.
Despite mitigation efforts by the county, the move will have a disastrous environmental impact on the land: 1,500 oak trees on the property would be cut and one of the best preserved oak woodlands in the area would be destroyed. The move will develop areas outside of Windsor’s urban growth boundary, leading to developments that are incompatible with the rural nature of that land. We ask also that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) not transfer the land into federal trust and that the Windsor Town Council also pass a resolution saying they are against the land going into federal trust.
