The proposed site is located on the southwest corner of Interstate 10 and New Mexico State Road 404 (O Hara Road), adjacent to the City of Anthony in Dona Ana County, New Mexico. The Pueblo of Jemez, through its Tribal Gaming Enterprise, will operate the casino facility. The BIA is the lead agency for the DEIS on this project. There are no cooperating agencies. A public scoping meeting for the DEIS was held by the BIA on March 16, 2005, in Anthony, New Mexico. The Pueblo proposes to build and operate a 24,000-square foot temporary casino while building a permanent gaming facility with a planned 103,500 total square feet on trust-acquired land that is adjacent to a proposed 90,000 square-foot hotel facility located on fee land. Access to the facilities would be from O Hara Road and the west frontage road along I-10. The temporary and permanent casinos and hotel would include associated parking. Environmental issues addressed in the DEIS include land and water resources, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, socio-economic conditions, resource use patterns, public services, noise, hazardous materials, visual resources, environmental justice, growth-inducing effects, cumulative impacts, and unavoidable adverse effects.
