Grand Forks casino plans on hold again


Plans for a Grand Forks casino run by the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa have been put on hold again.

The idea, which was revived in February after dying out in 2009 and 2005, was for the Turtle Mountain tribe to run an off-reservation casino in Grand forks to provide revenue for the reservation and boost tourism and entertainment options for the city.
