Proposed Casino for Romulus

Today, the Michigan American Indian tribe announced its plans to build a new casino and hotel in an empty field in Romulus.

Although the proposed $243 million project must be approved by the U.S. Department of the Interior and then Michigan’s governor before development begins, the project is on the table and has garnered support from Romulus’ mayor, as well as others that believe it would create new jobs and increase spending in the community.

If the casino plans were to get past the Department of the Interior and the governor, would a new casino in Romulus be good for the community? What effect would a Romulus casino have on Detroit’s casinos?

    I’m thinking any effect on the Detroit casinos would be negligible. With one in Romulus, you can have people with a long layover at DTW stop by the casino to kill time or something, maybe.

    What effect does having a casino-based economy in Michigan have on the long-term personna of residents who find themselves associating free time and enjoyment with gambling?

    Well, my route to Ann Arbor will be shot.

    In an empty field? Don’t think there would be a huge effect.
