The Kewadin Lansing casino project is a step closer to being developed. Yesterday a vote was made in favor of the casino by the Lansing City Council. The vote was approved 7 to 1.
With the approval from the city council, land can now be sold by Lansing to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians to build the casino.
The new casino project is estimated to cost $245 million to build. Supporters of the project believe the casino will help the city’s economy and create jobs. People opposed to the project include Governor Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette, as well as other Native American tribes.
Details of the Kewadin Lansing were announced in January.
