Milford Residents Say “No” to Casino Proposal

Milford voters sign in (From Milford Daily News)

 

Residents of Milford have rejected a proposal to build a $1 billion casino, further cutting into the field of potential candidates for the state’s first regional resort casino licenses.
 
    Foxwoods chief executive Scott Butera conceded defeat Tuesday, telling supporters that based on unofficial returns from the referendum, the project will not prevail.
 
    Crossroads Massachusetts had proposed a casino off Interstate 495 that would have been managed by Foxwoods.
 
    Opinion was sharply divided in the town of about 25,000 residents, with opponents warning of traffic jams and reduced property values, and supporters touting jobs and new revenue for Milford.
 
    The Milford result comes on the heels of votes earlier this month against Mohegan Sun in Palmer and Suffolk Downs in East Boston.
 
    Mohegan Sun has asked for a recount while Suffolk Downs is now considering a casino in Revere. (Associated Press)
