Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation will monitor the Rockville campus entry sidewalk project – after trenching work discovered a potential cultural resource – if Solano Community College District trustees meeting Wednesday approve a proposed agreement.
“Because of the potential for undiscovered cultural resources within the project area, monitoring of ground-disturbing construction activities by a tribal cultural monitor is required,” a college district staff report said.
Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation can trace its historical ties to land in the project and is considered the most likely descendant tribe, the report said. The contract allows up to 40 hours of monitoring and is an amount not to exceed $5,000.
