Lansing is one step closer in getting a new casino downtown.
Papers were signed Thursday morning for the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians to purchase city-owned land next to the Lansing Center where it will be built. Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero, the Tribe Chairperson Aaron Payment and main investor Bob Liggett all signed the documents transferring the land to the Tribe's ownership.
The next step is for the Tribe to apply for the federal government to take the land into trust for the construction of the $245 million project. The 125,000-square-foot casino will create an estimated 1,500 permanent jobs at the property and more than 700 construction jobs.
"While we still have a long way to go, today's milestone gets us one step closer to building a project that will help boost the economic revitalization of Michigan's capital city and transform our downtown into a major entertainment destination," said Mayor Bernero.
"This is a wonderful day for the members of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians," Payment said.
The Tribe intends to open the casino after receiving federal approval.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed suit against the tribe earlier this year, saying it's against federal law and a state agreement for the Tribe to build a gaming center there.
"The Tribe, in moving along with this, is violating the agreement that they signed on to. That's why it's being challenged in court and that's why we're confident we'll get a judge to agree," said Joy Yearout, the State Attorney General Spokesperson.
Yearout also says people should not be tempted by the appeal of a multi-million dollar casino.
"If opening a casino on every block in Michigan was the great path to prosperity, we'd be doing a lot better than we are now," said Yearout.
Plans for the casino include up to 3,000 slot machines and 48 table games, and assorted bars and restaurants in an urban modern-themed property.
