Steve Wynn’s Casino Proposal Gets Another Neighborhood endorsement

PlanPhilly reports:

The Olde Richmond Civic Association voted 191-20 in support of the Wynn Casino proposal for Delaware Avenue at a Monday night meeting.

“The voting result speaks for itself,” said Olde Richmond’s Phillip Stoltzfus. “Olde Richmond residents reacted positively to the creation of jobs and restored public access to the Delaware River.”

Fishtown Neighbors Association, the New Kensington Community Development Corporation and Port Richmond On Patrol and Civic have also endorsed Wynn’s plan for 2,500 slot machines,100 game tables, a hotel and spa, a 30,000-square foot nightclub, and green space including a dog park and skating rink.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is expected to rule on the application next year.
