Holyoke outlines timeline for casino proposal process

Posted: Updated:
HOLYOKE, MA (WSHM) -

The city has provided three potential casino developers letters outlining its proposal process.

As part of the process, Mayor Alex Morse said he is developing a community committee to provide leadership in what he hopes will be an efficient review process.

This past Monday, Morse announced he had changed his position and he is now open to bringing a potential casino to the city.

The timeline looks like this:

On Dec. 20 and 21, project concepts and presentations will be given to the community committee.

Jan. 3 and 4, the city will present its Memorandum of Understanding, which will describe what is next for the developers. This will include the host agreement, as well as fees and costs of the city moving forward.

Jan. 10, Morse will announce if one or more of the projects meet the criteria to enter into a host agreement.
