BLACK RIVER FALLS, Wis. — The Bureau of Indian Affairs has published a Notice of Availability of a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Ho-Chunk Nation Fee-to-Trust and Casino Project.
This step moves the Beloit Casino forward in the final approval process. For many years, the City of Beloit, Rock County, community members, and the Ho-Chunk Nation have been extremely supportive of the project.
“We feel energized as this is the farthest this project has ever been. We look forward to working with our local partners through this approval process that creates thousands of construction jobs and 1,500 full time jobs for Wisconsin,” said Ho-Chunk Nation President Wilfrid Cleveland.
The next step is a public hearing in the City of Beloit at a site and date yet to be determined
