New Bedford casino proposal on standby
Reshuffle the deck and deal out another hand: A high-stakes poker game continued Monday as city officials and the developer seeking to build a $500 million resort casino on New Bedford's waterfront asked state gaming officials for another extension of an application deadline.
"We remain in negotiations with the city of New Bedford, and with the city have jointly requested an extension of (Monday's) deadline," KG Urban spokesman Andrew Paven said. "We will appear at Thursday's Gaming Commission meeting in support of that request."
