The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin is finalizing plans for a $360 million casino resort project, which has been in development for some time. The tribe aims to partner with Hard Rock, a well-known brand owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, despite facing opposition from local lawmakers.

The proposed casino resort would span 70,000 square feet and feature 1,500 slot machines, 55 live dealer table games, and a dedicated sportsbook. The tribe sees this project as a way to sustain its operations and benefit the community it serves.

Although the tribe had previously attempted to establish a casino resort, previous efforts were thwarted by former Governor Scott Walker. Now, with a more modest investment plan, the tribe hopes to gain approval from both local and federal authorities to proceed with the project.

Negotiations with the city of Kenosha to acquire 60 acres of land for the project are ongoing, but the tribe faces additional hurdles, including securing Class III permission to operate gambling activities in the state.

Despite the challenges, the Menominee Tribe is optimistic about the project’s potential benefits and is actively promoting its plans to garner support from the community and state officials.
