New chance for casino, race track but NOT near Gettysburg, this time





The man whose plan to build a casino near Gettysburg drew national attention and significant local opposition in 2005 and 2006 said Wednesday he has the financial backing he needs to take a second shot at securing a slots license for Adams County.

LeVan said he intends to do exactly that if a license becomes available - something that seems increasingly likely....

This time around, LeVan's proposal will include plans for a horse-racing facility and be located somewhere in the southern part of the county - away from the Gettysburg battlefield and near the Maryland line. The project would cost between $400 million and $500 million and secure between $15 million and $20 million for the county and local government in tax revenues, he said.
