(Palmer, MA) — Voters in Palmer will decide today whether to approve a casino proposal by Mohegan Sun. The billion-dollar project off the Mass Pike would feature retail shops, restaurants, a cinema, and a water park. Mohegan has been pushing the idea of a Palmer casino since 2009 when it opened a storefront in the depressed former mill town. If the local referendum passes, Palmer will be up against Springfield for the sole casino license in Western Mass.
