Gaming Commission to Hold Host Community Public Hearing at Connolly Center June 25

Mayor Carlo DeMaria would like to inform residents and businesses of the Host Community Public Hearing being held by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission on Wednesday June 25th at 4:00PM in the Edward G. Connolly Center, 90 Chelsea Street.

The public hearing is intended to provide the Commission with the opportunity to pose questions regarding the application to both Wynn Resorts and the City of Everett, as well as receive public input from City of Everett community members.  The meeting is designed as an opportunity for the Commission to gather information and gauge public sentiment relative to the application.

During the meeting, Wynn Resorts, as the applicant, and the City of Everett, as the host community will make presentations for and respond to questions from the Commission.  After the presentations, the Commission will entertain the public comments portion of the hearing.

Members of the public that wish to make comments may submit them in written form in advance of the hearing by emailing them to [email protected] , with the name of the applicant (Wynn Resorts) in the subject line.  Any comments received via email will be made public in their entirety, including the identity of the commenter, and distributed to the Commission for their review prior to the hearing.

Those who wish to address the Commission at the hearing may place their name on the list of speakers by sending an email to [email protected] with “Request to address the Commission/Wynn MA” in the subject line.  Individuals will also have an opportunity to sign up at the Connolly Center on the day of the meeting prior to its start.

“I encourage as many residents, businesses, community partners and friends to join us at the public hearing,” states Mayor DeMaria, “This is our chance as a community to illustrate to the Gaming Commission why over 86% of our residents voted yes to support an integrated gaming resort in Everett and our historic host community agreement.  Let’s show them how much our City deserves this opportunity and why we are the only choice to site a gaming facility in Massachusetts.”
