Great controversy over the approval of the casino project in Pittsburg
The Kansas Crossing Casino & Hotel project received on Monday the approval from Pittsburg Planning and Zoning Commission for its implementation in the county of Crawford, but it should await the decision of the State gambling regulator to finalize the project. According to analysts, the construction should begin on July 15, but for that, the project must have the approval of the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission, which will meet on Thursday in Topeka. The committee will make a selection, as there are three proposals of its kind in the county. Cherokee County officials are in favor of Castle Rock Casino Resort project and say that the Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board did not respect the law of the State in this decision. According to supporters of the casino in Cherokee County, the Board should consider the draft that brings a better income, promote tourism and offer better benefit for the people of Kansas.
The Cherokee County officials plan a meeting on Thursday to ask the board to reject Crossing Kansas Casino & Hotel project in Pittsburg. The petition has already collected over 600 signatures on Tuesday. Kansas Crossing is the smallest of the three projects that the Council has examined: 70.2 million dollar investment, 625 slot machines, 16 gaming tables and approximately 500,000 visitors annually. The Castle Rock is a casino in Cherokee County. This $ 145 million project will offer 1,400 slot machines, 35 gaming tables and about a million visits per year.
