Document Description
The Tribe proposes to develop a combination Class II and Class III Gaming Complex and associated full service hotel structure (Proposed Project). The multi-phase development at build-out would include an approximately 80,000 sf of gaming floor accommodating up to 800 gaming machines and table games. The initial development phase would involve the construction of a fabric membrane structure occupying approximately 46,000 sf with 36,000 ft of gaming-related space and up to 60-room, four-story hotel tower. Phase 2 would include an expanded facility with increased gaming floor, restaurant space, and additional amenities. At full build-out the associated facilities would include a conference center and a multi-purpose event center, developed primarily by the conversion of the Phase 1 fabric membrane structure. Surface parking, included under both the first and second phases, would be constructed primarily to the south and east of the gaming structure with initial access to the project site provided from the existing Miller Lane intersection to the south of the project site. At full build out an additional access may be developed at the existing eastbound Fort Independence Road intersection with US 395.
