Casino Update

12 posts in this topic

I feel that there is nothing bigger than the debate over the casinos, as far as impact to the city. I hope you don't mind, but I would like everyone's input as the battle rages and WILL be coming to some kind of conclusion. Any news, articles or info regarding the city's future.

I found this one, where stressing the importance of the RESIDENTS of the city as being the sole "BIG WINNERS" out of all of this.

I for one, want to be sure to know everything that unfolds over the next months

Lest we forget the major player;

The Isle of Capri Development Plan on the Lower Hill

I will admit I have yet to read the big Plan B announcement from fast eddie . . . is it comparable to the savings to the tax payer of the Pens/Isle plan. I think any decision should be based on economics first, neighborhood location and ameneties later.

I think there will be many things written and many opinions viewed. There will be a lot of bias and twisting of facts in the press. I'm hoping, that creating this thread, that we, the all knowing :shades: will be keeping on top of all aspects of this and share any bits of information collected.

This is huge and it IS happening.

It will be a help to make sure as many people as possible are aware of whats going on, and to be sure to be informed of all the view points out there.

How can one not be overly suspicious about Harrah's true modus operandi?

With these aggressive strong-armed tactics & overinflated numbers, projections, and promises - you start to wonder....

OK, now that I've seen the gov's "Plan B" I think i'm switching my opinion to the station square site. The arena will still go in on the hill, and there will still be reason to bring in Nationwide to re-develop the old mellon arena site.

Yeah? Who is going to pay nationwide to develop the lower hill? Station Square? Probably not...

They're a developer, they can still be given the land to develop it. There wasn't a casino involved when they developed the arena district in columbus.

^^thats a good pt. tooluther . . . however isn't Nationwide committed to Columbus (HQ or major ops)? I'm not sure if the local corporate donors are up to the task of Nationwide. Wasn't the driving force a native son with a pathos to be virtual mayor in a way? Maybe I am wrong there but that's how I remember it. Even if we do have a major hometown corporate donor step forward we could use them for the West End Bridge area or to further develop the strip or Fifth/Forbes instead of uptown/lower hill.
