Casino Case Study: Diamond Jo Casino, Dubuque, Iowa —

Casino Case Study: Diamond Jo Casino, Dubuque, Iowa

At the most critical of times for our Siouxland community, we find ourselves at the crossroads of embracing a land based Casino. With much occurring behind the scene’s from those in our community who maneuver to decide our future, we find it important to make comparisons to others who have embraced success.

Dubuque (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubuque,_Iowa) a city a fraction our size, embraced a similar opportunity and embraced it well. The Diamond Joe Casino is a superb “Iowa” case study in what is possible when a community thinks with great ambition.

 

Diamond Jo Casino (2010 Iowa Gaming.Org)
http://www.diamondjo.com/home
• Employees: 524 (494 reside in Iowa)
• Annual payroll: $17.01 million
• Taxes: $18.4  million
• Charitable contributions: $3.1 million
• Buy Iowa First reinvestment dollars: $38.4 million
• Casino with slots and table gaming
The Diamond Jo Casino is a land-based casino.  The 188,000 square foot facility is home to a full service casino, four restaurants, banquet facilities, a 30-lane bowling center, and the latest night club turned concert venue in Iowa:  Mississippi Moon Bar.
We have but a breif momment to set the correct coarse for this “once in a lifetime” opportunity for our Siouxland community. A Mega-Casino with nearly 100,000 sq ft. of gaming, multiple restaurants, entertainment, shopping and a huge downtown revitalization package to boot. After the loss of large employers as Gateway and Terra, the 2011 flood and most recently the attack upon BPI, is it time to say enough is enough? We deserve, need and should embrace the appropriate mindset to accept nothing less then a Mega-Casino of Las Vegas proportion. 
There is a Mega-Casino option being proposed, it is not from our current “Argosy” operator Penn Gaming. Why does the Siouxland public not know?
