Fed Rejects Romulus Casino Plan

January 8, 2008

ROMULUS - The U.S. Department of Interior rejected plans by the Potawatomi Indians to build a casino in Romulus, Michigan, near the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

In a letter from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Department found the casino location to be too far from the reservation lands to benefit the tribe.  It said the 450-mile distance from the Hannahville Indian Community in Northern Michigan and would hurt their reservation life.

Similar letters were also mailed to ten other tribes across the United States rejecting their plans for off-reservation casinos for the same reasons.

The city of Romulus supported the planned casino and voters had approved a referendum on the issue in 2003.

"The decision is wrong and we are carefully reviewing our options. We are in this for the long haul and strongly believe this project is beneficial to the tribe, the community and the state," said tribal spokesman Chris DeWitt. He said the tribe may ask for reconsideration or it may file a lawsuit.
