Northampton Pushes For Casino Mitigation

(Northampton, MA) — Northampton continues its push for mitigation funding from MGM Springfield. Mayor David Narkewicz is petitioning the state gaming commission for so-called “surrounding community” status. That would force MGM to craft an agreement with Northampton, even though the two cities don’t share a border. Narkewicz also wants to be reimbursed for the cost of a 22-thousand-dollar study that looks at the potential economic impact of the proposed casino.
