Casino proposed for Wasaga’s west end
Gateway Casinos & Entertainment announced April 4 that it proposes to build a new casino on a 7.5-acre parcel of land adjacent to the Mosley St. roundabout in the west end of Wasaga Beach.
The new casino will have slots and table games, pending necessary government approvals and completion of the land transaction.
Construction is expected to begin this spring, once provincial and municipal approvals are obtained. In the coming weeks, Gateway will announce more details on the size and scope of the development including new employment opportunities, food and beverage offerings and the investment in the local economy for the new build.
“We are very pleased to announce that we expect to soon be able to move forward with our plans to build an exciting new casino and entertainment destination in the Town of Wasaga Beach. We look forward to receiving all the necessary provincial and municipal approvals and concluding the land transaction so we can start construction as quickly as possible,” said Keith Andrews, Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Gateway Casinos Ontario.
Clearview Township opted out as a willing host early in the process of choosing a location for the casino.
