Following the town of Everett approved a casino project plan by designer Steve Wynn, many observers believed he'd the hand that is upper gaining the Greater Boston-area casino license one of three local licenses that will be awarded by hawaii of Massachusetts. Nonetheless it turns out that geographical quirks could 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 administration, Wynn may not have been as careful as he thought together with his casino proposition. It would appear that some associated with the proposed development may be located inside the populous city of Boston itself, which will give the town the best to impact the project 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 ability even to simply say no to the project, scuttling it entirely.
Menino might have reason that is good achieve this. He has emerge in help 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 selected by the state.
However, Wynn does not believe that Menino's claims hold any weight.
