PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) - Springfield has passed its casino referendum, West Springfield has a signed host agreement, and now we're waiting for Palmer to complete theirs with Mohegan Sun .
Mohegan Sun was the first casino developer to show interest in western Massachusetts and the last to complete a host agreement.
Town Councilor Donald Blais Jr. told 22News he's pleased with their latest progress. "It's gone from frustration to now wait and see. I think with the release of the traffic proposals, I think, that's eased the frustration a bit. All we're waiting for now is for the host community agreement to be finished."
Town manager Charlie Blanchard has told 22News he expected this agreement to be complete by the end of July.
