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.
500 Nations is an independent directory and information service free of any gaming operator's control and not affiliated with any casino.
