Casino developers in Massachusetts face a Tuesday deadline to submit final applications to state regulators
MGM Resorts filed a final license application Monday with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. The company said the more than 7,000-page application laid out in detail plans for an $800 million resort casino project in downtown Springfield. The gaming commission is expected to make the application public in a few weeks. Public hearings on the project will be scheduled in Boston and Springfield. The city’s chief development officer Kevin Kennedy said everything points to a final licensing decision by late May
"I think we are on the correct path, so I think we are going to be ok."
MGM is the only applicant for a casino license in western Massachusetts. Wynn Resorts and Mohegan Sun are competing for the lone Greater Boston license.
