SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Casino developer MGM says they're ready to begin an environmental review for its proposed casino in Springfield.
As required by state law, MGM must send copies of its environmental notification form to communities that may be affected by possible environmental impacts.
Agawam, Chicopee, East Longmeadow, Longmeadow, Ludlow, West Springfield and Wilbraham will be notified.
The proposed $800 million MGM Springfield in the city's South End falls will compete with Penn National Gaming, which is proposing a casino in Springfield's North End neighborhood.
