Nearly 10 years after announcing its plan to build a casino bordering Glendale, the Tohono O’odham Nation’s purchase of nearly 11 acres owned by the city near the casino property was approved during the June 26 Glendale City Council meeting.

The land, which is on the south side of Northern Avenue approximately one half mile west of 91st Avenue, gives the Tohono O’odham Nation total ownership of the land near the new casino now under construction.

The purchased parcel is surrounded on three sides by land owned by the Tohono O’odham Nation, with the parcel’s fourth side fronting Northern Avenue. The property would not be used for gaming purposes, but for future economic development, undisclosed but not casino-related.
