a new casino hotel. The project is estimated to cost $60 million and will be
built in partnership with Gerald Peters, a Santa Fe art dealer, and the Jemez
August of 2004 was the when off reservation plans began. An application was
submitted and stalled for nearly two years. Now their Casino request is being
revisited by the federal government. This is happening due to new people in the
Interior Department and in the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
In 2008, the federal government rejected the casino request. Stating the site

The plan calls for a casino that will be 48,000 square feet situated on 70
acres. There will be game tables and slot machines. Located near Interstate 10
and New Mexico 404. On the 30 next to the casino will be the hotel.
950 people will be employed with fully paid medical.
