What is the projected economic impact of the proposed casino?

The proposed project is projected to have a significant, local economic impact, with early estimates totaling a new development cost of roughly $360 million, including approximately $104 million in construction payroll with nearly 1,000 construction jobs for 18 months. The planned casino and entertainment center is estimated to employ more than 1,000 people once it is fully built out, with the average annual earnings for full-time equivalent employees projected to be roughly $54,000.

More information is available in a fact sheet from the Menominee Tribe and an economic impact study that the tribe commissioned in 2023.
