A group of businessmen and the Wichita tribe of Oklahoma are interested in developing a casino near 21st and Broadway as part of revitalization efforts for that area. A casino “would bring money and prosperity to the area,” said Ken Thomas, who owns a pet supply business in the neighborhood.
The proposal and support seem sketchy at this point, but with downtown space limited, perhaps the City Council should at least consider this redevelopment area as a potential site.
