Las Vegas casino developer Steve Wynn will appear in Everett Wednesday with Mayor Carlo DeMaria to publicly address their discussions about Wynn’s interest in building a gambling resort on the Mystic River, according to the mayor’s office.
Wynn will also personally tour the proposed casino location, known as the former Monsanto Chemical site, for the first time. A top Wynn executive quietly visited the land within the past several weeks.
Political and community leaders in Everett sounded intrigued Tuesday by the advances from one of the biggest names in casino gambling.
“In a city that in the last five or six years saw virtually no substantial development, the fact that a developer of that magnitude is looking at that parcel is positive news for the people of Everett,” said Robert Van Campen, a member of the Everett Board of Aldermen, one of the city’s two legislative bodies.
