In April of this year, 5 months ago, I set the last official day of summer, September 23rd as our opening day of business, “subject to permit delays.” And while we are close enough to complete that the casino carpet has been ordered we are not there, yet.
There is no construction delay, only red tape. The construction schedule has progressed as planned; permitting delays from the town and the state have slightly delayed actually finishing out the interior build out of the Casino floor.
We have obtained all of the necessary State Lottery licenses and have received the green light to open from the State. We could open tomorrow with the build out complete. Finally on September 14th, we received the final build out permit for the actual Casino floor space from the town.
We are anticipating 33 construction days to complete the project and be ready to open. Opening day is all subject to permit inspections, final inspections, and final issuance of the occupancy permit. Allowing several days of inspection and red tape delays, we SHOULD and PLAN to be open within 29 days of our long planned September 23rd date.
We are planning a soft opening sometime around mid-October and will announce a Grand Opening date approximately 23 days from now.
For those of you who have been following along, you are aware of the process we went through. Internally, we set a date back in April. We feel pretty good to be looking at opening within 30 days of that date.
Please bear with us as we wrap it up and navigate the final construction finishes, and any delays which are beyond our control.
We have an incredible staff of management and dealers and have over 70 charities signed up.
