Do You Favor the Gambling Complex?

Or do you hate the proposed project?

The in unincorporated Norcross has been in the news for some time now.

The complex, which would be located at the OFS site by I-85 and Jimmy Carter Boulevard, would include 7,500 video lottery terminals, a 1,500-room hotel, a large venue, fine dining and retail.

Developer Dan O'Leary last week that the destination gaming center only needs the approval of the Georgia Lottery Board and the Gwinnett County Commission before starting construction.

While many of you have expressed your opinions on the idea already, we would like to see it in numbers.

Recognize the value of this initiative - job creation, economic stimulus, along with HOPE and PreK funding. Its a beautiful complex that will invigorate the local community and continue to drive funding for a scholarship fund that desperately needs it. Therefore - YES, I favor the gambling complex!

A gambling casino will set Norcross up for more trouble than we already have. Take it to a more affluent area that may/may not approve it. Also it will not help more students get the Hope Schlorship either. Many studets have already lost the Hope Schlorship due to changes. I saynay absolutely not!

Absolutely not - I live in Norcross and think it would be devastating to the area. A quick fix that will leave a bigger problem with not enough funds. The real estate in the area needs to recover first. Put it in an area that is stronger financially - if you can get it passed - The lottery is supposed to pay for educating the children of citizens of Georgia and it work well until approximately the last 5 years.

I'm for the Casino possibility, but hate the location - much too congested in that area already! I think it should be further out I-85 above Mall of Georgia area exit or at the north end of I-85! There's plenty of rural land still in those areas that would be less congested!

location should be rural , just off any major interstate or highway. YES, I vote YES
