MONROE, OH - The Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma tribe is proposing a casino in Monroe, Ohio. The tribe wants to build a 123 acre casino complex in the Turtlecreek township. The proposed casino will cost between $300 million to $350 million.
The state issue of casino gambling was shot down by Ohio voters in 2004. However, gambling is back on the ballot for this year's election in November. This measure will only be for to the proposed casino to be built in Clinton County. If the measure passes, it may be a stepping stone to allow other Ohio casinos to be built in the future.
The Bordertown Casino in Seneca, Missouri is also managed by The Eastern Shawnee Tribe.
