Springfield to negotiate with two casino developers

Mayor Domenic Sarno made the announcement on Monday after an internal review by the city of both casino proposals, one by MGM Resorts International and the other by Penn National Gaming.

The plan to begin negotiations with both companies does not guarantee that agreements will be struck with one or both.

Voters would be required to approve any host community agreement. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will have the final say on the awarding of the sole resort casino license for western Massachusetts.

There are two other casino proposals for the region: Mohegan Sun in Palmer and Hard Rock in West Springfield.
