Barrie casino in the cards Thursday night

Barrie residents can hear proponents and opponents of a possible casino in Barrie, tomorrow night (Thursday, Dec. 13) at council chambers.
The City is looking at a casino as part of the long-desired downtown hotel and convention/conference centre. Such a facility is seen as a key component to downtown revitalization plans, as well as a significant tourism draw.
If approved the casino would be operated by a vendor on behalf of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). Public input is required before any decision can be made. Following a presentation by the OLG, residents can give feedback to the committee through an open delegation, or by filling in and submitting a form that will be available at the meeting.
The session is scheduled from 7-9 p.m. Comments can be made up to Dec. 17 online at the City’s website, by email at communications@barrie.ca, and by mail to Communications and Strategic Initiatives Department, 70 Collier Street, PO Box 400, Barrie, Ontario, L4M 4T5
For more information, contact the Communications and Strategic Initiatives Department – communications@barrie.ca.
