The Enterprise Rancheria Project

Project Partners

Enterprise Rancheria has select project partners that bring a breadth and depth of experience to the project -- with financial strength, shared values and philosophy, experience and leadership in their respective fields, professional integrity and community commitment.

Project partners include:

Yuba County Entertainment (YCE), LLC

Yuba County Entertainment LLC (YCE) is owned by Gerald R. Forsythe, an Illinois-based industrialist and developer. YCE and affiliated entities own approximately1,362 contiguous acres in and around the Yuba County Sports and Entertainment Zone five miles south of Marysville, California, which currently serves as home to the 18,500-capacity Sleep Train Amphitheater featuring world class concerts under the stars. Forty acres are allocated for the Enterprise Rancheria gaming resort and hotel, a project anticipated to serve as the economic engine that drives accelerated development of the remaining 1,322 acres.

Other Forsythe sports and entertainment projects include the Mountain Grand Lodge and Spa, a world-class resort hotel, and Avalanche Bay, North America's largest indoor water park, both located at Boyne Mountain, Michigan. California investments include the Long Beach Grand Prix, an iconic motorsports event on the downtown streets of the busy port city, and Shimmin Canyon, a 1,200 acre winery in the rolling hills outside Paso Robles.

Maier Pfeffer Kim & Geary, LLP

Maier Pfeffer & Kim is a full service law firm whose partners offer combined attorney experience of over seventy-five years in the practice of federal Indian law. The partners are experienced general counsels, advising tribal leaders on a wide range of tribal governance, employment, and administrative concerns. The firm works closely with tribal councils and committees on developing and updating tribal constitutional and statutory laws and have specialized expertise in the areas of Indian housing law and policy, tribal court development, and state and federal legislative advocacy.

In the area of tribal economic development, the partners have represented and co-counseled California Indian tribes in gaming-related issues since the early 1980s. Their experience in gaming law ranges from the early days of bingo operations, pull-tabs, and card games through the move towards full Las Vegas-style casinos and games.

The partners have represented tribes in all phases of gaming development, from capital formation, regulatory compliance, litigation, human resources, compact negotiation, union negotiations, construction and operations.

CA Consulting
Leader in Tribal Communications Consulting

"For a subject worked and reworked so often in novels, motion pictures, and television, American Indians are...the least understood and the most misunderstood Americans of us all." - President John F. Kennedy, 1963.

CA Consulting (CAC) is an independent, Bay Area-based consulting group that works with American Indian entities to communicate their issues with clarity and accuracy. As the complex issues of tribal sovereignty and culture interact with the larger economy and social structure, it is vital that the American Indian voice is communicated effectively. We believe core native values such as honesty, humility, humor, and mutual respect provide excellent guidelines for our work and lives.

Emerging native nations and businesses require the highest-quality professional communications services to ensure their views and messages are accurately conveyed to stakeholders, including tribal citizens, consumers, local community groups, government-to-government officials, environmentalists, vendors, the media, and others. We work in close partnership with tribal entities to develop an effective mix of communications and community-relations strategies to break cultural stereotypes, dispel myths, and put tribal issues in their proper historical, political, social and economic contexts.
