The Shawnee Tribe’s fee-to-trust application for a gaming facility in Texas County was approved Friday.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Shawnee Tribe Chief Ron Sparkman all signed the application, clearing the path to move forward in plans to build Golden Mesa Casino.

According to Shawnee Tribe officials, Golden Mesa would create approximately 175 full-time and part-time positions and produce an annual payroll of nearly $3.7 million.

The project will feature approximately 600 electronic games, eight blackjack tables, a restaurant and a bar.

Officials said the casino is expected to have an annual economic impact of almost $34 million.

According to the Golden Mesa Casino Facebook page, they anticipate construction to begin later this year.

Shawnee tribal leaders have partnered with Global Gaming Solutions on the project. The casino will be built on 107 acres southwest of Guymon and will be the first of its kind built in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
