Grand Forks casino proposed

GRAND FORKS — The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa is proposing a casino and entertainment complex in Grand Forks.

A committee of the Grand Forks City Council will discuss the proposal, similar to one that failed in town in 2009, at its meeting Monday.

The Turtle Mountain Band approved a tribal resolution in October to seek approval for a gaming complex on land that the tribe would acquire.

A city staff recommendation says the council members should “engage in a good faith dialogue and community conversation” with the tribe on the merits of the project.

The committee members Monday will recommend action by the full council.
