Tribe to expand Saganing Eagles Landing Casino
Saginaw Chippewa Indian tribe hopes to finish construction in 2014, add hundreds of jobs
The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe plans to expand its Saganing Eagles Landing Casino in Michigan.
The Morning Sun of Mount Pleasant and MLive.com report the tribe announced plans Monday for the casino near Standish, about 120 miles northwest of Detroit.
The current 32,900-square-foot casino would see the addition of about 90,000 more square feet, including 150 hotel rooms, a diner and more gambling space.
Plans call for work to begin later this year. The tribe hopes to complete construction in spring 2014 and says the project will add about 250 full- and part-time jobs.
