Glendale ready for legal action against casino

Glendale is still not welcoming an Indian casino.

The city is preparing to mount a legal challenge to a federal decision to turn land near the Cardinal’s stadium into the state’s largest tribal-run casino.

Glendale leaders have routinely opposed the Tohono O’odham Nation casino because of the cost of providing water and sewer service and a lack of control over sovereign tribal land that was part of the city’s planning area.

A major hurdle was cleared last month when the U.S. Department of Interior approved the tribe’s application to take 54 of the 134 acres it owns into the reservation system.

Glendale expects to file the challenge after the Interior Department’s notice of intent to take the land into the reservation system is posted.
