Timeline set for proposed Fall River casino

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — The proposed Foxwoods casino in Fall River is closer to becoming a reality.

Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan has a draft of the agreement in hand and hopes to have it signed before the city council by April 8.

The mayor says he’s set an aggressive timeline for the project and wants to hold an election on the referendum in mid-June.

Foxwoods wants to build a full-scale casino at the site of the partially vacant New Harbour Mall on William S. Canning Boulevard.
