Under the Rebuild Illinois Law enacted in June 2019 there will be a new casino built in Danville, Illinois./
The Danville City Council is working with Vermilion Development, a large development company from Chicago, to find a casino operator to partner in the development and operation of the new Danville casino.
The best estimate for finishing construction and opening the new Danville casino is the end of 2021 or early 2022.
The first preference for the location to build the Danville casino is the area in and around Southgate Industrial Park.
Danville, Illinois is one of six cities selected for a new casino under the Rebuild Illinois Law enacted last June.
Danville City Council set up a steering committee comprised of city and business leaders to recommend qualified candidates as casino operators. The committee made its recommendations, and the council sent each referral a Solicitation for Proposal for the Danville casino project.
July 31, 2019 Deadline
Seven candidates responded favorably with Intent to Reply. Their deadline for submitting a proposal was July 31. Only two proposals were received by that time so the deadline was extended to August 21.
October 28, 2019 Deadline
Danville must choose one or more casino proposals and submit the candidate(s) to the Illinois Gaming Board by Oct 28 for final review and approval.
