Late Update:

Tonight August 6th at 7:00pm!

The Andover Board of Selectmen will host an informational forum on Tuesday, August 6th from 7:00 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. in the Hall at the Memorial Hall Library relating to the proposed slots parlor located on the Andover/Tewksbury line.  John Ziembra, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s Ombudsman, will be at the meeting to discuss the overall licensing process and the process for “surrounding community” designation status.  The application process that Tewksbury and the applicant, Penn National, are working towards has a very short timeline. No specifics regarding the applicant will be discussed. The possible impacts to the Town of Andover will need to be immediately assessed.  The Andover Board of Selectmen is taking this proposal very seriously and the affects it will have on traffic, public safety and the quality of life for its citizens.

    It would be nice if the commissioner took this on the road to the communities for which there are active proposals. For example in our area how about the Tewksbury Public Library?

    I’ll double check but I think one of the Gaming Commissioners is speaking before the Tewksbury BOS on Tuesday August 13th.
