The Municipality of Yarmouth is partnering with the Town of Yarmouth to request the Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation (NSGC) to conduct a feasibility study regarding the potential of a casino/entertainment centre for this region.
Town and municipality ask for casino study
Stacy O’Rourke, manager of communications for the NSGC, said that when a request is received from a municipality, the first step is to determine if it fits within the direction set out in the 2011 Responsible Gaming Strategy.
“Further steps would be determined from there based on the specifics of the request,” O’Rourke said.
Without knowing the specifics of the request, the corporation cannot determine what the costs might be, what the study would entail or how long it would take.
