"The Nation anticipates that the final hurdle, the Interior taking the land into trust, will happen soon. So we are still hoping for a groundbreaking this year,"

- Ryan Greendeer, Ho-Chunk Public Information Officer

Greendeer also confirmed an amendment to add sports betting to the tribe's compact agreement is underway with the state. Last December the Ho-Chunk announced plans to allow sports betting at all of its gaming facilities in Wisconsin.

Beloit casino moves towards Federal approval

November 09, 2018

On Friday the federal Bureau of Indian affairs produced the environmental impact statement for the land that would be used for the proposed Beloit Ho-Chunk casino. The location would take over 74 acres along Interstate 39-90 and Willowbrook Road. It would cost $405 million to build the casino resort.

With the completion of the environmental report, the project moves to the next stage. On December 11 a public hear will be held about the proposed casino. The hearing would be held in Beloit at Aldrich Middle School.

Beloit casino proposal facing BIA review

August 03, 2018

On August 17 the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs will review that proposed $405 million Beloit casino. The casino project is owned by the Ho-Chunk Nation. For many years the project has been in the works.

The meeting will be held in Washington, D.C. If the bureau gives approval the federal register will list the project. Officials for Beloit believe this will help the large scale development move forward.

A formal process and an established timeline would be developed if the proposed casino can be placed on the federal register. A series of public hearings will also need to be held.

The approval from the governor would be the next step after the public hearings. A one year time limit would be given for the decision from the governor.

The Ho-Chunk Nation are hopeful to begin construction on the casino project by 2020.

It will be located to the west of Interstate 90/39. Near Colley and Willowbrook roads.

Support for the casino has been strong with city officials. Last week several of them delivered letters by hand to U.S. Sen Ron Johnson. This was while he was visiting. The letters were to ask him for his support for the project by writing a letter to the bureau.

Plans for the proposed casino project include a hotel, indoor waterpark, and convention center.

An estimated 1,500 jobs will be created for the project. Nearby businesses will also benefit with another 1,000 jobs in creation.

In 2012 an intergovernmental agreement was made between the tribe and the city. A settlement with area tribes that would prevent them from stopping the Ho-Chunk Nation's project was made in 2014.

Beloit Casino construction will start in 2020

March 5, 2018

Plans have been announced for a new casino and water park to be opened by 2021 in Beloit. The project is owned by the Ho-Chunk nation. It has over ten years in development. The next step has started. The tribe is now seeking legal counsel to move forward with the project.

The casino and water park will be a very large undertaking. The casino would operate over 2,000 slot machines. 300 guest rooms are planned for the hotel. There will also be a convention center, shopping, and five restaurants. The water park would be 40,000 square feet.

Near Colley Road off I-90 is the planned location. Construction has been approved by the Beloit City Council and Rock County. The City of Beloit and the Ho-Chunk tribe have formed a partnership for the project. Construction jobs and related job services the construction will bring has been favorable by residents. When the project is completed over 1,500 jobs will be created and need to be filled.

There is some opposition to the casino project. Senator Dave Syverson from Illinois, believes that the convention center in Rockford could be affected. He also thinks that Milwaukee's BMO Harris Bank Center could also lose business.

Construction cannot proceed until other procedures occur first. The project must be approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Then Beloit has to host a forum for the public to make comments on the proposed project. After that step, the state governor must sign off on it. Then officials from the president's administration must also give approval.

The project is estimated to cost $405 million to complete.
