Springfield to Hold Public Forum on Casinos Tuesday
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – The public is being invited to hear from two proposed casino developers about their plans for the City of Springfield.
Penn National Gaming and MGM Resorts International will both host presentations, outlining each of their proposed projects, and give residents and business owners a chance to ask questions Tuesday night at CityStage.
The forum begins at 5:00 p.m. And is expected to last about four hours.
Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and free parking will be provided at the Columbus Center garage.
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno says, “As I have stated throughout, we are committed to making this a fair, open and transparent process and I strongly believe this event provides a great opportunity to gather public input. We encourage all residents and business owners in the City of Springfield to participate in this process.”
Each developer will have 30 minutes for their presentation, then questions will be allowed once both presentations have finished.
Anyone wishing to ask a question will be asked to sign-in and will have two minutes for their question.
Organizers add that placards, banners, and signs will not be permitted into CityStage.
