Douglas County And Delaware Tribe Discuss Land, But Not Casinos

Aug 26, 2014

Douglas County officials and leaders with the Delaware Tribe of Indians are meeting twice this week to consider what to do with 90 acres the tribe owns in northern Lawrence.

The two sides aren't saying exactly what they'll discuss. But Douglas County Commission chairwoman Nancy Thellman says they won't talk about putting an Indian casino on the land. Thellman has said she favors putting an agricultural project on the property.
