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:

  1. the legislative outcomes in Richmond that will ultimately determine the size and scope of our resort casino project;
  2. staff analysis of the gaming market;
  3. insights from the gaming committee;
  4. the outcome from Norfolk voters when they go to the polls in November to vote on the gaming referendum.
