LEOMINSTER, Mass. (AP) — The state’s gambling commission plans visits to the three communities that could play host to the first slots parlor in Massachusetts.

Commission chairman Stephen Crosby says the meetings will be the final opportunity for the panel to hear from local residents before awarding the only slots parlor license early next year.

The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday in Leominster, where Cordish Cos. has proposed a $200 million facility near Interstate 190 and Route 117.

On Wednesday, the commissioners will visit Plainville to discuss Penn National Gaming’s proposal to add slot machines at the Plainridge harness racetrack.

And on Thursday, the panel will be in Raynham, where the owners of Raynham Park have partnered with Greenwood Racing for a proposed slots parlor at the former dog racing track.
