On Wednesday the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians approved plans for a new casino and hotel in Shullsburg. The final vote was 217 to 141 in favor of the measure.

The tribe is from an area 14 miles from Minocqua and opened a casino on tribal land in 1999. In 2004 they bought 92 acres of land in Shullsburg with the intention of building another casino. In 2008 those plans were denied by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs due to guidelines of of reservation casinos at that time. Since then, the regulations have changed. The application for the casino project was resubmitted.

When the Lac du Flambeau voted in favor of the casino project, they also agreed to put the purchased 92 acres into trust. This will allow for the land to be considered tribe land and the casino will be allowed to be located there by law.

Before plans can continue on the casino, an environmental impact study has to be conducted. The vote also gave approval for the study to be done. The cost will be $400,000. The study can take up to two years to complete.

In total, the casino project will cost an estimated $80 million to build.
