…Jonathan Swain, president of Peninsula Pacific, said residents were able to weigh-in on the architecture of the casino idea as well as restaurant concepts.
A proposed casino in Slidell was on the table for local residents to come by and share their thoughts about yesterday at an event near the site. Project developers met with neighbors to answer any questions they may have about the proposal. Some residents expressed concerns over traffic, security and what the casino could look like. Project developers, Peninsula Pacific Entertainment, put on the feedback session.
Jonathan Swain, president of Peninsula Pacific, said residents were able to weigh-in on the architecture of the casino idea as well as restaurant concepts. Swain said the project is still very early in the development process. He said if it becomes a reality, there will be about 900 full-time positions created with $40M in payroll annually. He said drawings of the proposed casino at the event yesterday were only a draft and could change as the public offers more input.
The concept could eventually be put to a vote before all St Tammany citizens.
