PRESCOTT, AZ – The Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe recently restarted its development plans for a new tribal casino to be tentatively located on the tribe’s federal trust land at the junction of Hwy 69 and Yavpe Connector (across the street from the tribe’s Frontier Village Shopping Mall). The first phase of development shall begin in the coming weeks and will consist of soil tests and other preliminary site work by the project’s general contractor, Kitchell.
“The gaming market in Arizona is changing and the tribe is preparing for the future,” said Bob Ogo, President of the tribe’s Board of Directors. “Our two existing casinos, Yavapai Casino and Bucky’s Casino, have served the Quad City market for over 25 years. The casinos have provided secure, well-paying jobs for over 300 local employees, many of whom have been with us for over 20 years, as well as funded many worthy non-tribal charitable and civic community projects from the tribe’s gaming revenues for the past 20 years that have benefited the Prescott Valley and surrounding communities.”
