Voters Will Decide Fate of New Lewiston, Maine Casino Project

Voters Will Decide Fate of New Lewiston, Maine Casino Project

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.
