The project has been endorsed by both the Lewiston City Council and The Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council and most people don’t believe the opposition’s view that casinos suck money out of the economy.

Developers are planning to build a $120 million racetrack casino hotel which would also create 800 construction jobs and 500 full-time jobs. If approved, the facility will open in 2013 and it would be the state’s third casino.

Hollywood Slots Hotel & Raceway opened in late 2005 and Black Bear Oxford Casino is expected to open by mid-2012.
