City Councilor David D'Arcangelo wants Steve Wynn to know Malden is willing to work with him on a proposed casino in neighboring Everett.

D'Arcangelo has submitted a resolution calling for the Malden City Council to send a letter to Wynn, stating that the city is interested in being involved in the development process if he wins a license to build a casino on the old Monsanto Chemical Site off of Route 99 in Everett.

Wynn is one of three vying for a casino license in Greater Boston. 

"I'm really just trying to be proactive here and be ahead of the curve," D'Arcangelo said. "I want them to know: We're here, we have something to offer, and let's see how we could work together, if it gets selected." 

The Malden council previously sent a similar letter to Revere and prospective developers of Suffolk Downs, another competitors for the Boston area casino license, D'Arcangelo said. 

"We're not siding with one proposal or another, we just want them to know we're willing to work together," he said. 

Wynn's proposal, projected to cost $1.2 billion, calls for a 2.1 million-square-foot, 19-story tower with 550 hotel rooms to be built on a 37-acre site along the Mystic River.


D'Arcangelo's resolution will be considered by the rest of the council in a meeting Tuesday at Malden Government Center.
