BALTIMORE, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In preparation for the voter referendum on September 24, 2013, The Cordish Companies have launched a new website and Facebook page dedicated to the proposed $200 million Live! Casino Massachusetts project.
The website, which recently launched at www.livecasinomass.com, features artist renderings of the casino entertainment destination, a basic overview and FAQs about the project, highlights of community impact, workplace diversity and vendor registration information, a media center, and a dedicated page for information about The Cordish Companies, including a corporate background video. Visitors can also link to the new Live! Casino Massachusetts Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LiveCasinoMass
Live! Casino Massachusetts will be a $200 million world-class casino entertainment destination, featuring 1,250 of the latest state-of-the art slot machines and electronic table games, nationally-acclaimed and local restaurant brands, and a live entertainment venue. The Project, which is proposed for a site located on Jungle Road, off I-190 and Route 117, in Leominster, MA, will generate well over 1,000 jobs and contribute millions of dollars in local and state tax revenue.
The Cordish Companies currently has a host agreement in place with the City of Leominster. If the referendum passes, Cordish will take the next step in its bid for the sole Category 2 gaming license in the Commonwealth and present a final plan to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
"In addition to the new website and Facebook page, we plan to open a base office in Leominster in order to become more actively involved in the community as the September 24 referendum vote approaches," said Joe Weinberg, Managing Partner, The Cordish Companies. "Our team will be available to answer questions, provide information, meet with community and business leaders, and discuss the significant benefits in terms of jobs and revenues that will be generated by the Live!
