Cleveland: Temporary casino

February 17, 2010

CLEVELAND, OH - Cleveland is considering a temporary casino at the downtown Higbee building until a permanent one is built. The permanent site was approved by voters and adjoins the Higbee building.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson has called it "a great idea." City officials and the development company are discussing the possibility.

Jennifer Kulczycki, spokeswoman for the developer, said the temporary casino could operate until a permanent casino opens in Cleveland in 2013.

Amanda Wurst, spokeswoman for Gov. Ted Strickland, said that the governor would not oppose a temporary casino as long as its location is approved by Ohio voters and supported by that community.

Penn National Gaming is building the casinos in Columbus and Toledo. The company has announced it hopes to open both in the second half of 2012. It has no plans to open a "temporary" casino in either city.
