Brand New Casino Could Come To West Virginia Town With Population Of 721
Bill In State Legislature Would Authorize New Property
A bill up for consideration in West Virgina would authorize a casino to be built in the town of Franklin, which has a population of 721 according to the latest tally.
The state currently has five commercial racetrack casinos, and their revenues are reportedly suffering as a result of casinos popping up nearby in states like Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The Associated Press reported that one of the bill’s sponsors said that the new casino would draw customers from nearby Harrisonburg and Stanton. Charlottesville, Virginia is also not far.
According to the bill, the gaming facility would help establish a “rural resort community.” The idea is to increase tourism to the area, through gaming and hotel rooms — and dining. The bill would force a future developer to spend at least $60 million on the project.
West Virginia legalized casinos in 1994.
