Richmond on the lookout for suggestions on methods to spend on line casino cash

RICHMOND, Virginia – The city of Richmond held a virtual public session Wednesday night soliciting feedback on how to spend the $ 25.5 the city would receive from One Casino and Resort if the project was released in November approved by the electorate.

If voters approve the November casino gambling referendum, funds will be sent to Richmond in advance.

Preliminary poll results showed that the majority of respondents hope 70 percent of the money will go to projects in the south, from school-related projects to pedestrian infrastructure projects.

In order to provide feedback, the city a digital survey and mail-in surveys will be sent out through September 6th.

If the project is approved, the casino would be built on Commerce Road near the Philip Morris factory.
