Wynn Reaches Deals With 4 Boston-Area Communities

BOSTON (AP) — Wynn Resorts says it has signed agreements with four more Boston-area communities as it seeks to build a $1.2 billion resort-style casino in Everett.

The Las Vegas gambling giant announced Monday that it has reached “surrounding community” agreements with Cambridge and Medford and “neighboring community” agreements with Lynn and Melrose. The communities join Malden, which entered into a “surrounding community” agreement with Wynn in 2013.

The agreements, which can be found on the Massachusetts Gaming Commission website, include annual payments to the communities and commitments to hire local employees and use local businesses.

The announcement comes as the gaming commission is set to hold a public hearing May 1 on Boston’s bid to be designated a “host community” for Wynn’s proposed Everett casino and Mohegan Sun’s proposed casino in Revere.
