The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has announced a series of hearings at which six applicants for Philadelphia's second casino license will present their plans and proposals.
The first event on Feb. 12 at 9 a.m. inside the at the Pennsylvania Convention Center will precede the board's public input hearings on the projects but will not include public comment.
That input will come during hearings on April 11 and 12, also at the convention center, or written comments may be submitted starting in March.
The gaming control board says all of these events will be streamed live and also recorded for later viewing on its web site, http://www.gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov/.
A "Category 2" stand-alone casino license enables the operator to have up to 5,000 slot machines and 250 tables games.
The casino proposals were submitted by these six applicants at the following locations:
Overnight look for passing clouds and a few flurries. Bundle up and watch for icy patches on roads and sidewalks. Lows in the upper teens and low 20s.
The cold stays with us for a few more days with highs around freezing.
Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
