East Windsor Casino Wins Crucial Local Zoning Approval

East Windsor’s planning and zoning commission unanimously granted a zoning permit for the development proposed by MMCT Venture LLC, a partnership of the tribal operators of Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun. The venue — to be built on the site of the now-demolished Showcase Cinema movie theater off I-91 — is intended to blunt the competitive impact of a new, $960 million casino in Springfield on revenue and jobs tied to Connecticut’s gambling industry. MGM Springfield opens Aug. 24.
