Start Preamble


Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior.




This notice advises the public that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) intends to cancel work on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Proposed Hannahville Tribe of Potawatomi Indians' Hotel and Casino Project in Romulus, Michigan. The EIS is no longer needed because the Department of the Interior has decided not to accept the land into trust, on the basis that the proposed action did not adequately meet criteria for trust acquisition in 25 CFR 151.3; 151.10(b); 151.10(c); and 151.11(b).


This cancellation is effective June 20, 2008. Any written comments must arrive by June 19, 2008.


You may mail, hand carry or fax written comments to Terrance L. Virden, Regional Director, Midwest Region, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building, One Federal Drive, Room 550, Ft. Snelling, Minnesota 55111.
