Foxwoods Says Its Still Working With Fall River

Foxwoods is dismissing speculation that it has shifted focus from Fall River to New Bedford as the possible home for a new, resort-style casino.

Dale Wolbrink, a Foxwoods spokeswoman, said the Connecticut-based casino operator has not determined that possible sites in Fall River are “unsuitable,” despite local media reports. But she declined to comment on whether the casino is in talks with New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell about possible sites in his city, including the city-owned Whaling City Golf Course

In March, Foxwoods unveiled plans for a $750 million resort casino at Fall River’s New Harbour Mall. The proposal came after Milford residents voted down its $1 billion casino plan in 2013.

Mayor Mitchell says his administration has had “active discussions” with various casino operators, including Foxwoods, but declined to elaborate.
