CHAMBER SUPPORTS $200M CASINO
ENTERTAINMENT PROJECT IN LEOMINSTER
The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce endorses The Cordish Companies’ proposed Category 2 casino entertainment project, which would be located on Jungle Road, off I-190 and Route 117, in Leominster, MA.
Live! Casino Massachusetts will be a $200 million world-class casino entertainment destination, featuring 1,250 of the latest state-of-the art slot machines and electronic table games, nationally-acclaimed and local restaurant brands, and a live entertainment venue. The Project will generate approximately 1,200 new jobs and contribute millions of dollars in local and state tax revenue.
“The Chamber’s Board of Directors voted to back the development after polling our members and conferring with business leaders across our region, as well as in Maryland. The Cordish Companies has a proven track record for creating profitable, well-managed entertainment destinations across the country and for supporting the local communities where they do business,” said David L. McKeehan, Chamber president. “We’re proud to support a project that will create so many new jobs and contribute millions of dollars in tax revenue to the commonwealth.”
The Cordish Companies currently has a host agreement in place with the City of Leominster with a voter referendum scheduled for September 24, 2013. If passed, Cordish will take the next step in its bid for the sole Category 2 gaming license in the Commonwealth and present a final plan to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
“The Cordish Companies couldn’t be more pleased to have the support of the Chamber as we move through this process,” said Joe Weinberg, managing partner, The Cordish Companies. “We are committed to maintaining an open dialogue with officials and residents of Leominster, providing information and answer questioning as the referendum date approaches.” Learn More Here
