Mohegan Sun To Provide Update On Palmer Casino Plans

Officials with Mohegan Sun will present updated plans Monday night for their casino project in rural Palmer, Massachusetts. 


   Mohegan Sun recently said it plans to add a water theme park with a second hotel to the resort casino it hopes to build on a hillside just off the Massachusetts Turnpike.  Another group  has announced plans for a commercial development adjacent to the casino site.  Paul Burns, a member of the Palmer Town Council said the projects  are worth north of $1 billion

   Mohegan Sun is expected to compete with MGM Resorts in Springfield and Hard Rock International in West Springfield for the lone casino license available in western Massachusetts.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
