KIMBALL – Kimball City and District Commissioners announced a joint special session to hear a presentation on a proposed racecourse and casino.

The meeting with developer Canterbury Park Holdings will take place on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at the Kimball Transit Conference Center on the corner of Highway 30 and Chestnut. The session is open to the public.

The proposal includes a resort hotel, event center, restaurants, and gas station just north of Interstate 80 near the highway. 71 exit.

In July, the Nebraska Racing and Gaming Commission heard proposals for five new horse racing casino projects, including one in Gering and North Platte. No action was taken.

Nebraska voters approved a constitutional amendment last year that allows casinos to run on licensed horse rides.
