Foxwoods Agrees to Operate Proposed New Bedford Casino
KG Urban Enterprises spokesman Andrew Paven said in a statement Thursday that the New York-based development firm is “thrilled” about the deal. He says no one knows the New England market better than the Mashantucket Pequots, the tribe that owns the Foxwoods casino in Connecticut.
KG Urban is among a handful of companies seeking the final resort casino license in Massachusetts, which is reserved for the southeastern region. Applicants have until March 16 to file any initial application materials still outstanding. For KG Urban, that included identifying who would actually run the casino.
Messages seeking comment were left with spokesmen for Foxwoods, New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell and the state Gaming Commission.
