Bureau of Indian Affairs gives final approval for Beloit casino project

The Bureau of Indian Affairs gives final approval for placing approximately 33 acres of land into trust for the Ho-Chunk Nation’s Beloit casino project.

This gives the tribe the ability to move forward with the final design, infrastructure work, and construction on the planned development.

Development plans call for a casino, hotel, and convention space, along with other entertainment options like a water park, beverage and dining venues, and retail space.

According to a join news release, the project is expected to create 3,000 construction jobs and 1,300 permanent full-time jobs once it’s complete.
