The Yavapai-Prescott Tribe is restarting plans for a new casino in Prescott. The tribe plans to start the first phase of development on the site at the junction of Highway 69 and Yavpe Connector, which is across the street from the Frontier Village Shopping Mall, this month. The land is designated as federal tribal trust land and initial work will consist of soil testing and other preliminary site work. Bob Ogo, president of the tribe’s board of directors says “the gaming market in Arizona is changing and the tribe is preparing for the future.” The plan for a new casino originally came to light in 2014, but has yet to get off the ground. The tribe already owns Bucky’s and Yavapai casinos and the original plan in 2014 was to replace the other two casinos in Prescott with this new casino, but there is no word if that remains to be in the cards for the tribe.
