Turtle Mountain Chippewa propose Grand Forks casino
GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa is proposing a casino and entertainment complex in Grand Forks.
A committee of the Grand Forks City Council will discuss the proposal, similar to one that failed in town in 2009, at its meeting Monday.
The Turtle Mountain Band approved a tribal resolution in October to seek approval for a gaming complex on land that the tribe would acquire.
A city staff recommendation says the council members should “engage in a good faith dialogue and community conversation” with the tribe on the merits of the project.
The committee members Monday will recommend action by the full council.
