New Tucson casino is included in upgraded state-tribe gaming compact

April 15, 2021

The new gaming compact that added new games such as craps, roulette and baccarat to Arizona Indian gaming casinos also allows the Pascua Yaqui Tribe to build a third casino in Tucson. The development of the casino is now feasible but not guaranteed nor imminent.

The new compact specifies a new casino may be built by the Pascua Yaqui at Interstate 10 and Grant Road. The process will take several years before the project has all the required approvals from the local, state and federal governents.

The building site for the new Tucson casino must be taken into trust by the U.S. Department of Interior for the purpose of gambling under the Indian gaming Regulatory Act. The approval process requires an environmental impact report and community comments before a federal decision is made. That process is the longest and will take several years.

September 12, 2019

During its September 4 meeting the Tucson City Council voted 7-0 in favor of an intergovernmental agreement with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe which supports the transferring a 15-acre site owned by the tribe into federal trust. This is an early and important step in the long process for federal approval for the tribe to build a new casino within the city limits of Tucson.

The agreement between the City and the Tribe provides an operational structure if the federal government approves the land transfer by defining the roles and responsibilities of each party and establishing an oversight group to resolve issues that may develop.

The casino would be built on a 14.38-acre parcel of land owned by the tribe. The location is near West Grant Road and Interstate 10. It was the site of the Century Park 16 movie theater, and before that, it was a drive-in theater. The Pascua Yaqui bought the property in 2011.

If the casino plan is approved by the federal, state and local governments, it would be the fifth Indian casino in the Tucson area and the third owned by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
