How close would the Spokane Tribe’s casino be to the Northern Quest Casino in Airway Heights?

A lot of talk has been generated as business folks and residents are sounding off on a proposed Spokane Tribe casino on land they expect will be annexed by the City of Airway Heights.

Critics have said it's too close to Fairchild Air Force Base. And others say a second county casino will harm the character of the community.  The tribe argues that the casino, as proposed, would not deter or interfere with Fairchild's mission.  And they contend they have every right to seek economic development on lands that were once their ancestral site.

For a view of how close the proposed casino is to the Kalispel Northern Quest Casino, this map lays it out. The pin on the left half is the Spokanes' proposed site; the other is Northern Quest.
