Seneca Nation Pursuing Third Off-Reservation Casino Near Rochester, NY
The Seneca Nation of Indians is exploring plans for a third off-reservation casino in New York State.
Seneca Gaming Corporation has partnered with Flaum Rochester, LLC, to organize and coordinate development in Henrietta, states a tribal press release. Henrietta is near Rochester, the third most populous city in the state.
The tribe operates two off-reservation casinos in Buffalo and Niagara Falls—on land that was acquired in connection with a land claim settlement—and on its reservation in Salamanca.
The Seneca Nation’s recently resolved gaming dispute with Gov. Andrew Cuomo did not include another off-reservation casino, so it’s possible the tribe’s gaming compact will have to be amended. The Nation’s exclusivity rights include Rochester and Ontario County; Henrietta falls within the boundaries, reported salamancapress.com.
