Ernest Jones Sr., president of the native tribe, assured: “The economic impact of the project to the Prescott region is estimated to be US$80 million.”

US.- Native tribe from Arizona, Yavapai-Prescott, is studying the territory to build a casino and resort that was promised two years ago. The projected complex would be located 100 miles north of the state’s cosmopolitan capital city, Phoenix.

This casino and resort in Prescott would be the third owned by the tribe in Arizona. The whole casino conglomerate would employ near 400 citizens and would operate 90 card tables and 566 slot machines, according to the agreement that Yavapai- Prescot has with the authorities.

In northeast of highway 69, the ground is being tested to confirm right conditions for constructions. “Until soil sampling is complete and a ground breaking is set, nobody can predict completion,” stated company’s marketing director, Stephen Whisenhunt in an interview with Prescott Daily Courier.

The complex will feature 80 hotel rooms, special events and conferences’ room, an aesthetic between classic casino style, with old games but a modern atmosphere and fancy restaurants offering different cuisines are part of the plans for the big project that, for now, does not have a dead line.
