Casino pitch: tax revenue of $10m
Kraft offers town annual estimate
Proponents of a Route 1 casino say the $1 billion project envisioned by Las Vegas mogul Steve Wynn would generate at least $10 million annually in municipal taxes for the Town of Foxborough, a sum that would equal nearly one third of the current local tax levy. The proposal stirred up aggressive pushback in Foxborough from vocal local opponents, who say a casino would ruin the character of the town. Since then, Wynn and The Kraft Group have begun to ramp up their campaign to build public support for the project.
