Slot Parlor In Raynham
The Raynham Board of Selectmen has unanimously approved a host community agreement with a developer that wants to bring a slots parlor to the former dog racing track in town. Under terms of the agreement reached Tuesday, the developer will pay the town annual fees for more than $1.1 million. The developer, Raynham Park LLC, is the first to reach an agreement with a host community for the only slots parlor allowed under the state's gambling law. The agreement must be approved in a town-wide referendum, which is tentatively scheduled for August. The developer wants to build a slots parlor on the 125-acre site of the Raynham Park simulcast facility and former dog track. The plans include a 175,000-square foot building, stores, restaurants and a hotel.
