Following the town of Everett approved a casino project plan by designer Steve Wynn, many observers believed he previously the hand that is upper gaining the Greater Boston-area casino license certainly one of three local licenses that will likely be awarded by their state of Massachusetts. But it turns out that geographic quirks may make Wynn’s prospects of opening a casino there a little tougher than he thought.
According to members of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s management, Wynn might not have been as careful as he thought together with his casino proposal. It would appear that some regarding the proposed development may be located within the city of Boston itself, which will give the town the right to influence the project themselves.
If it were real that the Wynn proposal were to reside partially in Boston, then the city is considered a bunch community, and would have the capability to influence exactly how and if the project could move forward. In reality, Mayor Menino would have the ability even to simply say no to the project, scuttling it entirely.
Menino could have good reason to achieve this. He has emerge in help of a competing casino plan that will place the resort at Suffolk Downs, and eliminating perhaps the strongest competitor for the permit would go a long way towards getting that plan selected by the state.
However, Wynn does not think that Menino’s claims hold any weight.
