Matteson Joins the Race to Host New Casino in Chicago
Matteson Looking to Uplift Minority Businesses
Chalmers-Currin touts Matteson as “the absolute best” for a south suburban casino. Furthermore, they’re aiming to work with minority business enterprises around the development. They have already partnered with two minority-owned firms to help with the development of an indoor golf area and a family entertainment center next to the casino.
Along with these amenities, the casino itself will have 2,000 games, including slots and table games. Additionally, there will be a 36,000-square-foot convention space which can host community events and banquets.
Other Communities Vying to Establish a Casino
Other communities in the area are also looking to have casinos in their areas. Firstly, East Hazel Crest along with Homewood plan on getting a license to operate a casino that will be in the two suburbs. Additionally, the Ho-Chunk Nation is planning on filing an application to develop a casino in Lynwood.
East Hazel Crest and Homewood are working with a subsidiary of Poarch Band of Creek Indians on a development on the Interstate 80 and Halsted Street. The Ho-Chunk Nation wants to develop a casino on land it owns east of Illinois 394.
