Norfolk City Manager Dr. Larry “Chip” Filer releases statement
Norfolk City Manager Dr. Larry “Chip” Filer releases the following statement:
I am pleased to announce that we have reached mutually agreeable terms with the Pamunkey Indian Tribe to pursue a resort project that will conform and comply with commercial gaming legislation being considered in Virginia.
I want to thank Mayor Alexander for his direction and members of Council for their patience and support.
We look forward to:
- the legislative outcomes in Richmond that will ultimately determine the size and scope of our resort casino project;
- staff analysis of the gaming market;
- insights from the gaming committee;
- the outcome from Norfolk voters when they go to the polls in November to vote on the gaming referendum.
