BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Less than two weeks after construction was halted at the Red Clay Casino site, the Kialegee Tribal Town has a new plan for the site.
According to court documents filed Wednesday, the Tribal Town and the developers want the land to be used for a sports bar and restaurant with a live entertainment venue.
Wednesday's court filing also says the land owners want to put asphalt down to create a parking area to allow interim use of the site as a fireworks stand and a smoke shop.
The Red Clay Casino had been under construction in Broken Arrow at 111th and 129th East Avenue.
On May 18, a judge issued an injunction, stopping construction at the site. He ruled the Kialegee's had no right to build on the land and a casino would stand in violation of the state gaming compact.
The land is allotted to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, of which the Kialegee is a branch, and owned by two sisters who are members of the Creek Nation.
The court documents also show that the sisters who own the land, Marcella Giles and Wynema Capps, are now enrolled members of the Kialegee Tribal Town. They applied for enrollment May 23 and it was accepted by the Tribal Town May 26.
