Spokane Tribe's plan for 2nd casino not opposed by County

August 18, 2010

Spokane County commissioners on a split vote approved a second tribal owned casino.

The new casino project would be on tribal land, consisting of 145 acres, and annexed by Airway Heights. A $90 million bond was also authorized. Most of the bond money will go to sewage treatment plant construction and a loan for a medical research facility.

A unanimous approval was given to give Airway Heights some of the land of the raceway. 45 acres were agreed upon. Airway Heights will also have first right of refusal for 26.8 more acres in exchange for water and sewage service for the raceway in addition to a tax collected from the raceway of 50% of the city's admission tax.

The city also plans on the development of underground reservoirs for the treated sewage. The plan is to have this completed by summer 2011. Other plans include a sports complex to be built on the land. Possible facilities include playing fields, and a YMCA or a RV Park.

The casino must have federal approval. Until that time comes, the Spokane Tribe will make annual payments to Spokane County and Airway Heights based on the agreement. The payments will rise over ten years from $14,500 to $29,000. Of that money 80% will go to the county. 20% will go to the city. After the land is annexed, then the percentage to the recipients will be reversed.

After federal approval for the casino comes, then the tribe's payments will increase. Payments will start at $600,000 and raise $100,000 a year. Maxing out at $1.5 million. The payments help pay the government for services on land that is not taxable.

Monday night marked the approval from Airway Heights for the new casino.
