John Taylor Jr., the chairperson of the Twin River Group announced the plan of building a casino in Tiverton in April 2015. This came up because the Twin River Management Group got the permission to build a casino in Tiverton after 4,305 people voted for the building of the casino while 3,939 people were against its building. Through voting, a stronger relationship was built between the management of the project and the residents. According to Taylor, the voting process was so important in determining the progress of the plan which was well demonstrated by the waiting of the results for all the ballot votes so that the progress of the plan would be announced.
So, Which Rhode Island Casino Project Gets Approval?
Following the permission, the group plans to build a complex worth seventy-five million dollars at the William S. Canning Boulevard and Stafford Road junction on a forty-five-acre land over the Fall River line. Taylor hence conducted as many meetings as he could to directly convince the residents to support the plan in any way possible. These meetings have resulted to better plans of building the Rhode Island casino including the addition of an entertainment area and a hotel to the project as said by the chairperson.
84 Hotel Rooms
Indeed, this casino opens in the summer of the year 2018. Furthermore, there are several operating activities inside the complex. For example, you will find a restaurant with this an 84-room hotel. Also, you can play, thirty table games, and a thousand slot machines. However, the company officials say that the gambling business operating license comes from their own Newport Grand building.
Interestingly, the project is keen on environmental issues. More specifically, they involve both positive and negative effects. In addition, it aims to improve traffic issues. Especially, paying keen attention to the area around the casino. While solving these issues, it is also targeting safety. Specifically, the safety of the public as one of the main roles of the project.
Contributes 3 Million Tax Dollars
In order to emphasize its role, there is a promise of contributing three-million-dollar tax annually. This is to add on the one million dollars estimated amount of tax collected annually from the town’s meal, hotel and property taxes. This shows the concern it has not only to improve individuals’ living standards but also the overall well being of society.
In conclusion, the project is a good example of a good relationship between a business and the surroundings especially the residents surrounding a given business premise. The project has shown a good start and its operations are expected to be more effective in Tiverton.
