Chumash Casino Resort’s exciting expansion program is underway. The plan is to add 215 hotel rooms, 584 parking spaces, gaming floor space and other amenities to ease overcrowding of the current facility. The casino and hotel will remain open during the expansion, which will help boost the local economy by creating new construction jobs and supporting Santa Ynez Valley businesses.
