EDITORIAL: Turning Stone’s latest project

Posted

Our entire region should be pleased at the Oneida Indian Nation’s plans for the largest expansion and financial reinvestment at Turning Stone Resort Casino in the last 20 years.

We can recall our first tour of the resort casino, still under construction without a gaming table or machine in sight. Even then the project seemed extraordinary in rural Verona, whose town boards had been covered by Sentinel reporters who wrote about highway culverts, road improvements, farm repairs and other agriculture-related agenda items.

How far things have come.

The multi-year project will nearly double the existing convention and meeting space at the resort and include a new hotel — roughly the same size as the Tower Hotel with approximately 250 guest rooms — as well as new dining options, outdoor spaces and additional amenities. Ground-breaking is expected to take place in 2023 on the multi-year project.

The construction is projected to infuse millions of dollars into the region’s economy, particularly with local businesses and vendors.

When completed, the expansion will attract more regional and national conventions, the Nation says. Along with more permanent jobs.

We look forward to seeing the result of this project that is sure to enhance the resort casino’s ability to lure tourists to its world-class hospitality.
