CHICAGO — Chicagoans can give feedback on the city’s plan for a Bally’s casino during meetings Tuesday night and next week.
The city’s public meetings are 6-8 p.m. Tuesday and Monday in person and online. Attendees will discuss project updates for Bally’s $1.7 billion riverfront casino and resort, which will replace the Tribune Publishing site in River West.
The meetings will be livestreamed online. Project updates include “design, traffic and safety for the temporary casino site and updates to the planned development,” according to a news release.
Bally’s will launch a temporary casino at River North’s Medinah Temple in spring 2023, and the permanent casino is expected to open in 2026.
After heavy skepticism and scrutiny, the casino was ultimately approved by City Council in May.
