Wynn promises quick response to state concerns
EVERETT, Mass. (AP) — Wynn Resorts is promising a swift response to concerns from the state’s environmental secretary, who raised legal questions about the acquisition of MBTA-owned land critical to the casino’s traffic plans.
Wynn Everett President Robert DeSalvio says Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton found the gambling company’s plan “suitable on substantially all of the 59 conditions” for the project identified by Beaton’s predecessor.
The Boston Herald (http://bit.ly/1yOBn8E ) reports that Beaton also said the state Department of Transportation, working with Wynn to upgrade to state-owned roads to the casino site, must integrate the plans with those of Boston, which has had a long-term federally financed $100 million fix for Sullivan Square and Rutherford Avenue that did not take into account casino trips.
Boston has launched a legal challenge the gambling license.
