FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — Foxwoods is looking to make another attempt at entering the Massachusetts casino market, this time in Fall River.
Mayor William Flanagan has scheduled an announcement for Tuesday on a plan for a $750 million resort casino in the southeastern Massachusetts city.
A spokeswoman for the mayor says no specific site for the casino has been chosen.
Voters in November rejected a proposal by Connecticut-based Foxwoods to develop a casino in Milford.
The state’s 2011 gambling law allowed for one casino to be built in the southeast region, but gave preference to a federally-recognized Massachusetts Indian tribe.
The state’s gambling commission voted last year to accept commercial applications from the region while it monitors the efforts of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe to win federal approvals for a proposed casino in Taunton.
