Mohegan Sun to provide update on Palmer proposal
PALMER (AP) — Officials from Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut plan to update residents in Palmer next week about their proposed $600 million casino project in town.
The Republican of Springfield reports that the public forum next Monday at Pathfinder Regional Vocational Technical High School is expected to draw a big crowd, as residents have been eager for more information.
Town Manager Charles Blanchard says Mohegan officials are expected to reveal more about the scope of the project, planned for a roughly 152-acre site.
The proposal by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority is among the contenders for the state’s lone casino gaming license for western Massachusetts. The others include two casino projects proposed in Springfield and one in West Springfield.
