First there was Blastein. Then there was Wynn. And then, there were somehow four others. But the public will have their day to hear the plans for each casino proposal submitted to the city by the appropriate deadline.
According to CBS 3, “The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has scheduled a series of public events as it prepares to vet six different proposals competing for Philadelphia’s second casino license.” The six proposals will be presented in an information-only presentation day at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on February 12th. That day is open to the public and no registration is required, so expect to see these people there. In addition, “the gaming board will begin registration in early March for public input hearings to be held April 11th and 12th.” And in the spirit of it all, our money is on Blatstein’s proposal going through, but we won’t know for a few months.
