Hard Rock Kenosha Casino Plan 2013

Nation | Tribe: Menominee Tribe of Wisconsin

The Menominee Tribe has wanted to build a casino in Kenosha since the 1990s. In 2013 the tribe partnered with Hard Rock to build a $800 million casino resort branded with the name Hard Rock Casino Kenosha.

After years of legal hurdles to obtain federal and local approvals, the tribe only needed state approval from Gov. Scott Walker to proceed with the project. Gov. Walker rejected the casino plan on Jan. 23, 2015.

Kenosha casino approval has less risk than in 2015: Report

October 30, 2022

In 2015 Gov. Scott Walker rejected plans of the Menominee Tribe to build a Hard Rock casino in Kenosha because the state could incur an unlimited liability to the Forest County Potawatomi Community (FCPC) for lost revenue at the Potawatomi Casino in Milwaukee.

A report by the Legislative Reference Bureau (LRB) last week found the state's liability is now "significantly reduced" if the Menominee Tribe builds a casino in Kenosha. The reason is due to a 2018 amendment to the gaming compact between the state and the Potawatomi tribe. The Potawatomi tribe can no longer withhold tax payments to the state until it proves actual losses from a Kenosha casino. The lifetime withholdings would be limited to $250 million. The state Department of Administration doubts that limit would be reached when the compact expires in 2031.

The Legislative Reference Bureau is a nonpartisan organization that provides research, information, and other services to the Wisconsin Legislature.

Tribe chairman Ronald J. Corn confirmed the partnership with Hard Rock and added:

"Much has changed since our 2015 effort, but the needs of our tribe and its members have continued and in some cases grown more acute. We need to make greater investments in health care for our children and elders; we need to make more investments in educating our young people; and we need to do more to reduce the high levels of poverty, hunger, and unemployment on our reservation. A casino and entertainment center in the City of Kenosha is the best path for our tribe to obtain the resources to help achieve those important goals."

- Ronald J. Corn, Menominee Tribal Chairman

Hard Rock affiliate purchases 60 acres in Kenosha

July 19, 2022

Speculation of a new casino project emerged last week when the Village of Bristol sold 60 acres of land to a company with the same Florida address as the Seminole Tribe of Florida, owners of Hard Rock International. The land is west of I-94 and north of Highway 50.

Hard Rock Kenosha Map

In 2013 the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin partnered with the Seminole Tribe to build an $800 million Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Kenosha. That plan was rejected by Gov. Scott Walker.

If this is a new casino project emerging in the Kenosha area, Hard Rock may be partnering again with the Menominee Tribe. Wisconsin law requires casinos to be owned by Wisconsin tribes.

More information about the casino plan may be coming soon.

Is Hard Rock Casino Kenosha plan resurrecting?

May 30, 2022

Hard Rock is resurrecting plans to build a casino near Kenosha according to a report last week by Empower Wisconsin. The new location would be a 16-acre site west of I-94 in Bristol, Wisconsin.

In 2013 Hard Rock proposed building a $800 million hotel and casino at the Dairyland Greyhound Park. The project was a partnership between Menominee Nation and Hard Rock International, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida. In 2015 the plan was rejected by then-Gov. Scott Walker.

According to Empower Wisconsin, Capitol sources have confirmed a new casino effort is underway to purchase the 16-acre property located 15 miles west of Kenosha. The size of the project would be substantially smaller than the $800 million casino hotel proposed in 2013. Details are not available.

Bristol officials say they have no information about a casino plan in their area.
