The state Board of Public Works gave final approval Wednesday for a casino to be built at a state-owned Western Maryland resort.
After three years of lackluster bids and lukewarm interest from developers, a company has been chosen to build a slots casino at a debt-ridden state-owned resort in Western Maryland.
Maryland officials will meet Tuesday with potential developers of a planned Western Maryland slots casino with the expectation of moving ahead with the project that has long been stalled by a weak economy and a lack of developer interest.
Maryland officials on Wednesday extended their deadline for proposals for a planned Baltimore slots casino, further delaying a project already hampered by minimal developer interest and ongoing lawsuits.
