Last week the Shoshone-Bannock hosted their annual meeting. A proposed phase of
construction was discussed for their casino at the Fort Hall complex.
Plans would turn their current casino facility into a bingo hall. The hotel and
event center would be expanded to add the new casino. A bar would also be added.
The land belonging to the Fort Hall Indians is a dry reservation. However, they
agreed to allow beer and wine to be sold at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel Events
Center in 2012. It is not known at this time if the new casino will be able to
sell alcohol. The tribe will vote on the issue on May 29.
Cost of the project is projected to be $35.2 million. As of now the tribes have
a $21.8 million loan from when the hotel was financed. The tribes are trying to
work with Wells Fargo to obtain the loan that is needed to complete the casino
and refinance the current loan.
As of now, there are no design plans. However, the interior will reflect the
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
