Slots proposal for Leominster

By Nick Mallard, nmallard@sentinelandenterprise .com

AP PHOTO Casino patrons play some of the 600 slot machines at the Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin shortly after its grand opening in Farmington, Pa. The $60 million project is said to have created more than 350 construction jobs, and received about 2,500 job applications for 500 jobs. The Leominster City Council will hear a proposal tonight from Maryland-based Cordish Cos. and local developer Dan McCarty to bring a slots parlor to the city.



LEOMINSTER -- The search for prime real estate has brought a slot-parlor proposal to North Central Massachusetts.

A local developer and a real-estate and entertainment operations company will present their proposal for a slot-machine establishment in Leominster to the City Council tonight at 6:15, putting the wheels in motion for a slot parlor potentially off Route 117.

The Cordish Cos.-- a Baltimore-based operation that has opened several hotels and casinos across the country -- has partnered with local developer Dan McCarty of Leominster-based McCarty Cos. to devise the proposal. They hope to snag the lone slot-parlor license available in the state, for which applicants can apply through Oct. 4.

"They're coming before

the City Council to share their ideas. It's an opportunity for them to present their proposal," Leominster City Council President Susan Chalifoux Zephir said Sunday. "We're hoping residents of Leominster will look into it, whether they watch on (LATV) or come to the meeting."
Should the council deem it a viable plan, the proposal would be put to a public vote at a date to be determined, with the cost of holding the referendum paid for by the companies.

Ward 2 Councilor Wayne Nickel said the proposal would be on a section of land off Jungle Road, which runs past the Leominster Walmart on Route 117, off Interstate 190.

"It's a good location for most businesses to look at," Nickel said. "You have 190 and Route 2 coming together

not far from it. It's a good location. You can get traffic coming from the south in Worcester and east-west along Route 2."
Nickel and Chalifoux Zephir noted the facility would house only slot machines, though the proposal likely would include multiple restaurants and shops.

"It seems like they've done some major projects in the past," Nickel said. "And given the area, it wouldn't be a massive resort, and it would be limited to slots."

Chalifoux Zephir realizes the idea of a slot parlor in the city would be a polarizing concept.

"It would increase tax revenue and add both ongoing and construction jobs," she stated. "But there's going to be cons to go with the pros. There are certainly people who are anti-gambling, especially when it comes to the city where they live."

The Cordish Cos. presented a similar proposal to the Salisbury Board of Selectmen a week ago, but saw it shot down by a 3-2 vote. That proposal was for a 120,000-square-foot facility, three restaurants, a theater and a parking garage, according to the Eagle-Tribune of North Andover. It was reported that those against it cited the short time frame in reaching an agreement and setting up the necessary referendum.

"We are very enthusiastic about the Massachusetts market and look forward to working with the state and the Massachusetts Gaming Commission on our application," Cordish Managing Partner Joe Weinberg said in a statement in January, when Cordish applied for a gaming license.

Cordish's casino-development portfolio includes Hard Rock casinos in Hollywood and Tampa, Fla.

Civil service supporter you are really sick. My mother is the Aunt B in Mayberry. She screens Shirley Temple movies before she allows my 6 yr old niece to watch them. She is transfixed with Little House on the Praire.

You are totally lost on this one! My Father is a great person. He raised three boys putting them all through Catholic grammar and High schools. As a kid he would not allow us not to sing in Church. We went every Sunday dressed up for church and we wouldn't dare not pay attention to the service. He had us all volunteering for the church, opening the door for ladies and always being polite. He is now 75 and has been through a lot in his life and never even received as much as a speeding ticket. He served in the military.

You have the wrong family here !!
hey silly

Your family is obviously extremely screwed up, if they can take any credit at all for raising you. If your father was the kind of father that a boy needed, you would not be getting down on all fours and howling at the moon while Gomez crawls up your ass.

You said before you never had a relationship with your father? And the little time with him was all dysfunctional that is why you are messed up?

Are we changing our story again?

Don't worry, relax, slots are not coming to Leominster. Every city and town will have the same proposal and the developers are hoping at least some of them will approve it.

Then they move on to the next step for State approval of the complex and operation.

All communities are being approached because that will increase the chances for a developer to find a location if the voters in the community approve it.
