Online Petition to Back Up Tinian Resort and Casino

An online petition calling for support of a Titanic-themed resort and casino project on Tinian Island is currently in circulation. 

The Tinian Ocean View Resort and Casino project in the Northern Marianas has been temporarily halted due to a lack of gaming permit, as well as restrictions on the nature of port-related activity that apply to the area.

The Hong Kong-based investor, Bridge Investment Group LLC, has allocated $US130 million for the complex. The company has about 80 members of staff and a monthly payroll of $US160,000.

According to Philip Mendiola-Long, CEO of the firm, efforts are being made to put an end to the economic decline of the island by introducing a dependable ferry transportation service from and to Tinian. So far, $US3 million has been invested in the relocation and construction of the ferry facilities at the Port of Tinian.

The total project expenses since groundbreaking day in August 2014 amount to over $US10 million.
