Minnesota Tribe Considers Casino Expansion - Wednesday 21st of December 2005

CLOQUET, Minnesota – As reported by the Duluth News Tribune: "People coming to Black Bear Casino and Hotel in a couple of years could find a vastly different, larger facility.

"The Fond du Lac Band of Chippewa is considering building a 12-story, 240-room addition to the hotel; a four-story parking ramp; a convention center; and a new, larger casino.

"…Under the plan, the band would build the hotel addition, parking ramp and convention center first. It would then move the casino games into the convention center while the existing, two-story casino is demolished and a new, single-story casino is built.

"The new casino would include a bingo hall for at least 400 people and room for up to 2,000 video slot, poker and keno machines. According to its Web site, the current casino has about 1,450 machines.

"The project would also include a buffet and restaurant, and an auditorium that may hold more than 2,000 people…"
