The board will consider the application submitted by Penn National on March 4.

US.- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has announced that it will hold a public input hearing on Monday, March 4, 2019 to collect testimony on the Category 4 casino application submitted by Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association (Penn National).

The hearing will take place in the Caervarnon Township Building at Morgantown, Pennsylvania. The board said that the purpose of the hearing which, per provisions of the Gaming Act must be held within the local municipality in which the proposed casino would be located, is to both provide a forum for individuals to voice their support or opposition to the proposed casino and to permit those persons with an interest in the applicant’s proposal to learn more about the project.

PGCB has also started accepting requests from citizens, public officials and community groups who wish to provide oral or written testimony regarding the proposed casino. All information received by the Board during these proceedings, either in oral or written form, will be included in the record upon which the Board will grant or deny a license.

A separate public hearing will be held, at a later date, in Harrisburg where Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association representatives will offer oral arguments and Board members can ask additional questions prior to a licensing decision, said PGCB in a statement.
