Casino Could Be Coming To Rochester
Be on the look-out for A-Train running joyfully through the streets!
Eureka Casino Hotel from Nevada and The Rochester Fair Association are reportedly looking to bring a casino to Rochester.
According to a story Fosters.com, "The Fair Association has reached out to the Economic Development Department for a potential site, and the Rt.11 corridor is being eyed as a location. Establishing a casino in Rochester would require approval through a city vote, according to the Rochester Fair Association. Site plans would go before the Planning Board after officials find a suitable site."
