Ponca Tribe prepares to build Carter Lake casino

July 19, 2018

Property is being prepared for the beginning of construction for a new casino in Carter Lake. The casino will be owned by the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska. Land where it will be built is undergoing the final legal steps for it to be taken into trust as tribal land.

A ground breaking ceremony was held in June for the new project. It was held on four acres of land in an industrial section of town. A prayer was given by the tribe's cultural affairs director, Dwight Howe during the ceremony.

Close to the Omaha city border, the ceremony had officials use their shovels to dug into the dirt where the casino will be built. Currently the tribe operates a tobacco store where the new casino will be built.

The project is being seen as a way for the tribe to develop their own sovereignty and build their economic independence. Money from the casino will go to fund tribal programs for housing, education, and healthcare.

Design plans for the facility have not been released. It will be developed in several phases. The casino will operate 2,000 slot machines in the beginning. In time they will add a hotel with seven stories. The casino will also be redone, expanded, and add table games.

Carter Lake is located on the western side of the Missouri River and on the border of Nebraska.

In order for the city to support the land being put into trust for the tribe, it was agreed that payments would be made to the city instead of property taxes. The money would be used to cover expenses that will be needed for the area. Such as additional police and fire services.
