The proposal to build a casino near Guymon has overcome its final hurdle.
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin approved the Shawnee Tribe's proposal on Tuesday, March 7.
The plan calls for building the Golden Mesa Casino, a $25 million project, on 107 acres about four miles southwest of Guymon.
According to Shawnee Tribal officials, the casino would create about 175 jobs and produce an annual payroll of about $3.7 million and is expected to have an economic impact of $32 million.
The tribe is expected to partner with Global Gaming Solutions who will serve as the management company for the project.
