Slots Parlor Plans Go Before Public Hearing

The slots parlor proposals for Leominster and two other communities in Massachusetts will go to a public hearing today before the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, which will decide which of the three will get the state’s sole slots license.

Each of the three developers was scheduled to offer up to 90-minute presentations at a six-hour-long meeting the commission began this morning. The meeting comes just three days after the deadline for all slots parlor developers to submit final plans to the panel.

Cordish Cos. is the developer behind the $200-million proposal for Leominster. Its site would be located on Jungle Road, just west of Interstate 190 and south of Route 117. The other developers are Penn National, which is seeking to build a slots parlor in Plainville, and Raynham Park LLC, which is pushing the Raynham site.

The commission said it will provide public access to the public portions of the final slots applications on its website, by Thursday. Today’s presentations by the three developers are also be streamed live on that site.

The commission has said it will award the slots license by the end of the year.
