BOSTON (AP) - A business group seeking to build a casino on the New Bedford, Massachusetts, waterfront has an agreement for Connecticut-based Foxwoods Resort Casino to operate it, but the project faces hurdles.

New York-based development firm KG Urban Enterprises says it has a commitment from Foxwoods as an operator but is unsure whether it can reach a deal with New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell.

Mitchell tells The Boston Globe (http://bit.ly/17X7jAu) discussions about “whether a casino makes sense at the proposed site” are taking place.

Foxwoods and the state Gaming Commission haven’t returned messages left Thursday seeking comment.
