Forward Momentum: Rizzo Honors Several Residents in Annual State of City Address

Story by Seth Daniels- Revere Journal   Mayor Dan Rizzo recalled several noteworthy events from 2013, made an extensive pitch for the casino project at Suffolk Downs and honored several residents for achievements during a 40-minute State of the City speech in front of the City Council Monday night. In a speech that was less about policy and more about highlighting certain areas of the City, Rizzo began by going through a number of achievements from 2013 he felt were milestones for the City. Among those things were MCAS scores in the public schools, the beginnings of the Stadium replacement project, the Broadway beautification efforts and breaking ground on the first residential project at Waterfront Square. He then moved on to a 15-minute treatise on the benefits of the casino project by Mohegan Sun, saying it would change the City forever if it came to be. “I’d like to take …

Casino applications stretch thousands of pages

By Milton J. Valencia|  GLOBE STAFF   JANUARY 01, 2014 Wynn Resorts delivered a final application more than 18,000 pages long to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, promising a $1.3 billion resort casino on the Mystic River waterfront. MGM’s application for a Springfield casino topped 7,000 pages. And Mohegan Sun submitted more than 16,000 pages outlining its plans for a 42-acre project at Suffolk Downs in Revere. The three companies, the remaining applicants for two of the state’s three casino licenses, submitted their final applications by Tuesday’s deadline, punctuating a comprehensive, two-phase application process that had already seen other companies bow out of the competition. The gambling commission said on its website Tuesday that it plans to publicly post the lengthy applications next week. It hopes to name the winning licensees for Western and Eastern Massachusetts by May. Link to Story

Revere would receive $33m down payment, $25m to $30m a year, under Mohegan Sun proposal

By Mark Arsenault |  GLOBE STAFF     DECEMBER 23, 2013 REVERE — Connecticut casino giant Mohegan Sun would pay the City of Revere $33 million upfront, as well as annual payments of at least $25 million to $30 million under a deal announced today for a gambling resort at the Suffolk Downs racetrack. The deal is expected to go before Revere voters for a referendum vote in about 60 days. “Through this partnership, Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs will create jobs, enhance our local and state economy, and generate much needed revenue,” Mayor Daniel Rizzo said in a statement. Mohegan Sun wants to build a $1 billion gambling resort on about 42 acres in Revere owned by Suffolk Downs, which the casino operator would lease. Plans call for about 4,000 slot machines, 100 table games, and a poker room. “This agreement formalizes the strong partnership we’ve quickly established with …

Gambling panel formally OK’s new Revere casino vote

Decision keeps Suffolk Downs proposal alive By Mark Arsenault|  GLOBE STAFF   DECEMBER 19, 2013   The state gambling commission this morning formally approved a waiver for Mohegan Sun and the city of Revere to permit another casino referendum in the city, probably in February. The waiver lifts one element of a year-end deadline for final casino resort applications, and allows a Mohegan Sun casino plan at Suffolk Downs to move ahead in the contest for the Greater Boston resort casino license. The waiver applies only to the new referendum vote; the company must still submit all other documentations and drawings to support its bid by Dec. 31. The waiver comes in response to a split vote for an earlier Suffolk Downs casino plan that would have located the casino in both Revere and adjacent East Boston. Revere voters supported the project, but East Boston voters said no. Hours after the vote, …
