SHIPPENSBURG, Pa (WHTM) — The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is asking for feedback on a proposed mini-casino in Shippensburg Township. It’s hosting a public input hearing today at Shippensburg University.
This discussion is happening at the Luhrs Performing Arts Center at 4 p.m.
The board will collect testimony on what’s called a category 4 casino application.
Parx Casino wants to build a mini-casino with 600 slot machines and a restaurant.
Shippensburg Township supervisors approved the location last month.
It would be in the former Lowe’s not far off I-81 in Shippen Towne Center.
If approved, the mini-casino would hire 125 people and open next year.
The hearing will also give community members the opportunity to learn more about the proposal.
