“Receiving six proposals demonstrates that the city remains an attractive place for investment,” Mayor Stoney said. “We are committed to a complete and competitive evaluation and selection process so that Richmonders will have the best project possible to consider when voting on November 2nd.”

Each proposer has submitted a one-page summary of their project, which is now posted online.

Convergence Strategy Group will present their analysis of the resort casino market opportunity for Richmond and share information on community best practices for resort casino projects, mitigating community impacts, community benefits, and how communities have used resort casino revenues.

Residents will be able to share feedback and ask questions online about the proposed projects and resort casinos.

The first virtual meeting will be held on March 9.
