Massachusetts Transportation Secretary Backs Wynn Resorts Key Allow Application
Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack said in a letter to environmental officials that gambling operator Wynn Resorts has addressed all traffic issues that could arise through the construction of its $1.7-billion casino in Everett within an adequate way.
Ms. Pollack had written inside her letter that the Greater Boston area is subjected to research that is quite comprehensive the past 10 years or so and serious traffic problems have been posed well before luxury resort and casino had been proposed. Based on the Transportation Secretary such long-lasting problems could be best resolved ‘through a regional working group.’
The official additionally argued that Wynn Resorts’ plan includes solutions for certain short-term problems and that the gambling operator must be given the light that is green continue with the construction of its home without being needed to handle long-lasting people existing a long time before it had been granted the casino license for the Grater Boston area.
Ms. Pollack’s page arrived soon after Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey delivered her very own letter to Matthew Beaton, state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs, asking the state to keep his decision off on whether Wynn Resorts is provided a vital environmental permit. Mr. Beaton is anticipated to announce his choice no later on than August 28 friday.
The gambling operator cannot begin construction on its multi-million-dollar resort before it is given the so-called Environmental Policy Act certificate.
