Michigan tribe breaking ground on Saganing Eagles Landing Casino hotel

In Michigan, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe has reportedly announced that it will be holding a ground-breaking ceremony tomorrow afternoon to mark the start of construction on a new five-story hotel for its Saganing Eagles Landing Casino in southern Arenac County.

According to a report from The Arenac County Independent newspaper, the federally-recognized tribe, which also runs the larger Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort near the Isabella County city of Mount Pleasant, revealed that the new development will offer 148 rooms along with space for an additional 400 slot machines.

“This expansion further solidifies our presence in our aboriginal territory and shows our commitment to the community and economic growth for the region,” read a statement from Frank Cloutier, Chief for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe, which has in excess of 2,400 enrolled members. “I am very proud of our abilities and our staff for all that they do to make the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino one of the most preferred places to visit. Thank you to all of our patrons for your visits and soon to be your play-and-stay experience. There are so many possibilities for a brighter future and with continued collaboration we will look forward to enjoying them together.”

The Saganing Eagles Landing Casino welcomed its first players in 2007 and it currently offers more than 800 slots alongside a collection of electronic gaming tables. The facility brought in more than $120 million for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe during its first two years while the tribe’s gaming compact with Michigan means that the enterprise surrenders 2% of its net proceeds to the state each year.

The Arenac County Independent reported that the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort already offers a hotel while the new facility for the Saganing Eagles Landing Casino, which was first announced in 2013, is expected to be completed early in 2019.
