Salem Doesn’t Need More Traffic and a Las Vegas Casino in Our Neighborhood
The Siletz Tribe is attempting to build a massive, Las Vegas-style casino right in the heart of Salem. If approved, a commercial lot off of Portland Road in northeast Salem will become a 180,000 square foot gambling operation, with 2,000 gaming devices, 45 table games, along with a 500 room hotel, and 3 restaurants – right off of Interstate 5.
This casino will attract thousands of monthly visitors creating new traffic in our residential neighborhoods which will make our neighborhoods less safe – Like we don’t have enough traffic issues already!
If one tribe can do it, why wouldn’t other tribes also put mega-casinos in Portland, Eugene, and other major metropolitan areas? How fair would it be for the Siletz Tribe to have 2 Vegas-style casinos while the rest of Oregon’s tribes only have 1? Soon we will be living in an Oregon we don’t recognize, with casinos all over the state.
Join our coalition of community leaders, business owners, and concerned citizens and say NO SALEM CASINO!
