Gila Community Debuts Casino Facility Plan to Chandler Open House

On October 3rd, 2007, the once questionable plan by the Gila River Indian Community to change and remodel their Lone Butte Casino in south of Chandler is earning praises from city officials and open house to neighbors.

The members of the Gila River Indian Community Casino Owners Expansion Team will debut their plans for a casino facility at Kyrene and Pecos worth $60 million to an open house in Chandler.

Gila River spokesperson Alia Maisonet commented that they will break ground at the location and open for business in late 2008. Chandler Mayor Boyd Dunn commented that he do not know any other instance that representatives from Gila River hold a meeting in their city. He said that this shows a great and honest desire on their part to be a useful neighbor.

Owner Craig Tanner said that the gambling facility, which is 120,000 square foot, has five eating establishments and a parking space that can accommodate 2,500 cars will replace the Rock Solid concrete plants, which will be move a mile south along the Interstate 10.

The Lone Butte facility located southwest of Chandler Boulevard and 56th street needs a new area because the Gila Community is planning to relocate their bigger Wild Horse Pass casino closer to the Interstate 10. State regulations require casino facilities to be a mile and a half apart from one another.

Dunn had petitioned for the open house after some residents from Chandler express some wariness about the Kyrene Road's location to residential homes and school even though the Santan Freeway runs between the city and the Gila community.

The location was picked by the expansion team. The first location in Gilbert Road and Hunt Highway was abandoned because of the protests by the residents, agricultural problems and transportation problems.
