MIDDLEBORO - The next step in the process of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe's
application for federal approval for a casino will be a public hearing scheduled
March 25th to consider the environmental impacts of the project. The hearing is
scheduled for 6 p.m. at Middleboro High School. A similar meeting is scheduled
March 26th at Mashpee High School.
These hearings are "scoping sessions" designed for the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs to define the scope of an environment review of the Middleboro casino site. The review will take 6-12 months to complete followed by publication of an environmental impact report.
This is part of the application process by the U.S. Department of Interior to determine if the Mashpee Wampanoag lands qualify for transfer into federal trust. If approved, the land will be sovereign to the tribe and exempt from state taxation and most regulations.
