In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights of Mohegan Sun's Surrounding Community agreement with the City of Boston for our resort casino proposal in Revere. The agreement is the most generous of its kind and it ensures that all the measurable impacts of our project will be mitigated.

For most people, gambling is just a fun night out with friends. But Mohegan Sun has always recognized that a small segment of the population is susceptible to gambling-related problems. In some cases, that means compulsive gambling. It’s something Mohegan Sun takes seriously and we have worked to support those who need help.
Against the backdrop of its proven committment to work closely with area communities and grow regional economies, Mohegan Sun Massachusetts took another major step forward in its quest to build a world class destination casino resort when it announced Thursday a surrounding agreement with the City of Boston and Mayor Marty Walsh. The deal will mean at least $300 million to Boston over 15 years, along with funding for major capital projects and transportation improvements.
Last Tuesday, hundreds of residents joined us at Revere High School as we stood before the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and outlined key project distinctions that differentiate Mohegan Sun Massachusetts from our competition. As always, your support was outstanding and is a critical component in our pursuit to provide Massachusetts with the casino proposal it deserves.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will hold its last public hearing Tuesday, June 24, on the Mohegan Sun Massachusetts proposal to develop a world class destination resort at Suffolk Downs. The hearing will be held at Revere High School from 4-8 p.m.
