Cascade Locks casino plan awaits environmental impact report

October 5, 2009

The final Environmental Impact Statement for a Cascade Locks casino is expected to be released this month. The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs hope to build a 600,000-square-foot casino and hotel in the Port of Cascade Locks which would include a 90,000-square-foot gaming floor, hotel rooms, a conference center, restaurants and shops.

A spokesman for the tribes, Louis Pitt, said "All of the technical pieces have been addressed in a 5-inch-thick document that's been packaged up and sent back to Washington, D.C.. We really don't know an exact date when it will be available for public review, but we think that it will be in October."

Pitt continued, "We have waited for more than four years to get this far at the federal level and, while we don't think there will be a decision made by the Interior this year, we believe that it could happen in the early part of 2010."

In 1855 the Warm Springs tribes signed over 10 million acres of land to the United States government including the gorge corridor. Although they moved to their Central Oregon reservation, they retained their legal right to hunt, fish and gather foods on the ceded lands along the Columbia River.
