The Coquille Indian Tribe wants to build a casino in Medford Oregon and name it "The Cedars at Bear Creek". The location would be in the southern part of Medford along the east side of Highway 99.

The Medford casino would be the second casino owned by the Coquille Indian Tribe. The Tribe owns and operates The Mill Casino Hotel in North Bend, Oregon.

Progress Report

In 2012 the Tribe purchased Roxy Ann Bowling Lanes and the old Kim's Restaurant which totals 2.42 acres. This land acquisition was submitted to the U.S. Interior Department to determine if it qualifies as a building site for a tribal casino.

In 2017 the Interior Department found the Tribe has the right to build a casino on that land once it is transferred into federal trust.

The Coquille tribe then applied the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs to place the land into federal trust. This is a multi-step process that is proceeding and a final decision is expected soon.

Proposed Medford Casino Opposed

September 24, 2013

Much opposition has been given to the proposed Medford casino. The Coquille Indian Tribe wants to open an additional casino. This has many speaking out against it.

As of now there are nine casinos in Oregon. All of them are tribal owned. At North Bend, on Central Oregon's coast, the Coquille own their casino. They want to transform a bowling alley in Medford into their second casino location.

The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Indians own a casino north of Medford. Their fear is the new casino would hurt their business.

Medford is 165 miles away from the Coquille casino in North Bend. The U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs has been asked by the tribe to put property in Medford into a land trust. If approved the Medford property would be considered part of the tribe's reservation land. Therefore allowing for the development of a casino.

Currently the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988 allows for tribes to developed casinos in locations where they choose. On September 19 there was a hearing by a congressional panel about the proposed casino location. It was advised that certain portions of the gaming act should be rewritten to discourage tribes from being able to build casino so far from their tribal land.
