After the town of Everett authorized a casino project plan by designer Steve Wynn, numerous observers believed he previously the hand that is upper gaining the Greater Boston-area casino license one of three local licenses that will be granted by their state of Massachusetts. However it turns out that geographic quirks will make Wynn’s prospects of opening a casino there just a little tougher than he thought.
According to members of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s management, Wynn might not have been as careful as he thought together with his casino proposition. It appears that some associated with the proposed development may be located in the city of Boston itself, which will give the town the best to impact the project by themselves.
Then the city would be considered a host community, and would have the ability to influence how and if the project could go forward if it were true that the Wynn proposal were to reside partially in Boston. In reality, Mayor Menino would have the capability to simply say no to the project, scuttling it entirely.
Menino might have good reason to achieve this. He has come out in support of a contending casino plan that could place the resort at Suffolk Downs, and eliminating perhaps the competitor that is strongest for the license would help towards getting that plan chosen by the state.
However, Wynn does not think that Menino’s claims hold any fat.
