St. Louis County Council approves zoning change for new casino

November 30, 2009

ST. LOUIS COUNTY – The St. Louis County Council this month approved zoning changes that would allow the development of a new casino and entertainment complex in north St. Louis County.

The council voted 4-2 to approve the rezoning request for a site near Columbia Bottoms Conservation Area. It is 377 acres located a mile north of Interstate 270.
The proposed project includes a casino, convention center, theater, hotel, sports bar, buffet, store space, 18-hole golf course and 8,000 parking spaces.

Mayor Robert Lowery of Florissant said afterwards "The construction of this project will put thousands of people back to work. There are a lot of people in need of this project."
However, Michael Berg, who opposes construction of the complex said "Building a giant facility on the confluence of North America's two largest rivers ... is not the way to promote economic prosperity in this county."

There remains three major obstacles to building the project. The casino must pass the environmental regulation hurdles, overcome concerns about flood plain development and, finally, obtain a gaming license from the state.

"This North County group knows that there is no license available," said Gene McNary, executive director of the Missouri Gaming Commission. "They're preparing themselves with proper zoning and I don't know what else, probably market studies, in case a license becomes available."
