North St. Louis residents against proposed casino

(KMOV) – North St. Louis residents lined up Wednesday opposing a proposed casino that could bring hundreds of jobs to the area and $10 million in yearly revenue. The 40,000 square foot casino would be located just south of the Chain of Rocks Bridge.  

Opponents say there would be major traffic problems if the casino were passed. Another issue of the opponents is the casino would damage the environment.  

The developer of the this project says 1,300 jobs, including construction jobs, would be created.   Six hundred of those jobs would be permanent. 
 
The Missouri Gaming Commission is set to make a decision at its next meeting on December 1st.
