(Holyoke, MA) — MGM-Springfield has granted the city of Holyoke “Surrounding Community” status under the Massachusetts gaming law. The casino giant will pay Holyoke 50-thousand up front, 1.3-million over 15 years, and provide residents with jobs. Holyoke is the only community not directly abutting Springfield that MGM has agreed to negotiate with. Northampton has petitioned the state gaming commission for surrounding community status, which would force MGM to come to the table.
