BELOIT—The Bureau of Indian Affairs has approved placing 33 acres of land in Beloit into trust for the Ho-Chunk Nation, which is the final step in the process to start construction of a tribal casino and resort in Beloit.
No timetable has been announced yet when the casino project will begin construction or when it will be complete at its site near the intersection of Willowbrook and Colley roads and adjacent to Interstate 39/90.
Ryan J. Greendeer, Ho-Chunk Public Relations Officer, said the Ho-Chunk Nation will work with the City of Beloit regarding the development of the site now that federal approval of the project is complete. He said some planning already has been completed and the first phase will involve infrastructure work. However, future stages of the project will involve seeking bids for construction.
