Richmond in the US state of Virginia has been presented with six casino development plans and the public will now begin having their say as to which proposal is best.


The first community session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9. The second public engagement meeting is on March 10. Both events will be held remotely through Microsoft Teams. During the sessions, representatives from each casino group will present the community with its plans.

"Community members will learn about the community engagement process and the community benefits a resort casino may provide,” explained the Richmond Department of Economic Development.

The meetings will also disclose how the city would use associated gaming revenues from the casino, as well as how the city plans to mitigate potential negative impacts of allowing gambling in the town.
