Fellow Patriots of Lake County,
Polson City Council approves Annexation 7 Aug 2023
The City Council of Polson Montana approves an unprecedented first step to annex 79 federal trust acres into the City of Polson. The beneficial owner is the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal corporation will ensue to immediately commence next steps to build out a new, third establishment in which to offer gambling, a potential future hotel, conference center, RV park, new Polson visitor center, up to several hundred affordable housing units, and potentially several other commercial parcels which will all remain in federal trust status. The high density expansion is only possible by leveraging sewage waste into the existing Polson sewer facility. A negotiation which will benefit the CS & K Tribal corporation immensely both on precedence and financially. Phase 1 will commence with a lease of approximately 10 acres to S & K Gaming for immediate casino construction, subject only to final hurdles of red tape, in response to a recent and very limited traffic study conducted at the intersections of Irvine Flats Road and U.S. Highway 93.
