West Springfield Mayor Greg Neffinger has signed a host community agreement with Hard Rock for a casino at the Big E. The deal would give $26 million annually to the city and the region, including $35 million up front for traffic mitigation. The agreement paves the way for a September 10th local referendum. The company is in competition with MGM in Springfield and Mohegan Sun in Palmer for the sole casino license in Western Mass.
