OKLAHOMA CITY - As part of the application process, the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs is seeking comments from Oklahoma City area officials to determine if 104 acres purchased by the Shawnee Tribe in northeast Oklahoma City should be taken into federal trust for the purpose of building an Indian casino. The BIA sent letters requesting comment on May 9th. Comments must be returned within 30 days of that date.

Some members of Oklahoma's congressional delegation have announced they will submit a letter in opposition to the casino. Rep. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma City, whose district includes the proposed casino site, says residents in her area that oppose the project are nearby tribes with casinos, Remington Park and other nearby tourism businesses.

If the Shawnee's application is approved and the land is placed into federal trust, the tribe plans to build the following:

  • Casino resort located at Interstate 35 and Britton Road
  • 2,000 slot machines
  • Hotel - 18 stories
  • Bowling alley
  • Performance hall - 2,400 seats
  • Retail shopping area
