Details on Public Casino Hearing Sept 23 at Coronado
September 23rd at the Coronado Performing Arts Center, three different locations/organizations will present their case to the public. According to WREX the three different locations for a Rockford casino are:
- 7801 E. State Street, former Clock Tower Hotel and Conference Center.
- 650 Race St., downtown along the Rock River and near the Amerock Hotel project.
- 8055 Springbrook Road, along the city’s I-90 corridor, near the new Javon Bea Hospital-Riverside.
The doors will open at the Coronado at 5 p.m. and it's first come, first serve. No reserve seating is available, and the Coronado PAC seats 2,400.
Each location representative will have 45 minutes on stage to speak.
The fact that doors open at 5 p.m. and this pubic forum goes until 10:30 pm is a bit concerning. But I suppose you have to let the "keyboard warriors" all have a microphone too.
