Revere, Mohegan Sun to Discuss Casino Agreement

Mohegan Sun at Suffolk Downs Proposal RenderingBOSTON (AP) — Officials from Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs are scheduled to be in Revere on Monday to discuss details of a host community agreement for a resort-style casino there.

State gambling regulators cleared the way last week for a vote on a Revere-only casino plan by waiving a requirement that Mohegan Sun have a referendum and submit results by Dec. 31.

An earlier proposal for a development on the Boston-Revere border was rejected by voters in East Boston.

Mohegan Sun now wants to build a casino entirely on Suffolk Downs property in Revere.

Mayor Daniel Rizzo says he’s confident voters in his city will back the revised plan. It would likely compete for the sole eastern Massachusetts resort casino license with a plan by Wynn Resorts for Everett.
