Steve Wynn drops Foxborough casino proposal
Decision follows Foxborough vote
Casino developer Steve Wynn on Tuesday abandoned plans to build a Foxborough gambling resort, a decision that reshuffles the competition for the sole Greater Boston casino license and eliminates a top-tier competitor for a casino proposal at Suffolk Downs. Wynn’s retreat, announced Tuesday, after anti-casino candidates swept the Foxborough town elections, marks the first ballot box defeat for a would-be casino developer in Massachusetts. The vote also underscores the difficulties in locating a casino in Greater Boston.
