Fort Mojave off-reservation casino up for vote

Voters in Needles, California, will have their say on November 4 on an off-reservation casino sought by the Fort Mojave Tribe.

Voters are being asked to approve the location of a casino outside of city limits. The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is backing the proposal.

"Particularly when tribes have historical ties to the area - as this tribe does - then I think it can be a good thing, as long as the community supports it," said Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, The Redlands Daily Facts reported.

The tribe plans a 100,000 square-foot gaming floor with 1,500 slot machines on a 300-acre site.
